Access to Technology

  • "Like all students in Calcasieu Parish, my students have their own laptops.  hey work on them daily in all classes, but in my class they work on ST Math.  My students enjoy using Pear Deck to solve word problems.  They prefer the iPads to their laptops for this app, as it is easier to draw their models on the iPads.  We are also 1 to 1 for iPads.  Before school let out for the Christmas holidays, we used Tinkercad to create Christmas ornaments and printed them on the 3D printer. I love learning about new technology that I can use to help learners of all kinds."
