Nayatt School Technology Resources
Dear Parents and Families:
Did you know? Nayatt School provides a variety of ways for students to interact with a variety of technology resources. The students in Grades K and 1 have explored coding with Ms. Muccino, our Enrichment Specialist and all grades will explore coding in the library during the month of February. Coding in a a great way for students to build their computational thinking skills. This is part of the Barrington Public Schools Strategic Plan. In education, computational thinking is a set of problem-solving methods that involve expressing problems and their solutions in ways that a computer could execute. Components of computational thinking include abstraction, automation, and analysis.
The students are practicing their self-reflection and problem solving skills as they interact with SeeSaw to communicate with families. Second and third graders are posting their work on See Saw.
In addition as part of our work in K-3 in research, the students are accessing the google drive and utilizing the tools available to them to take notes and develop paragraphs.
In light of the use of chromebooks for state assessments, we want parents to know that we have keyboarding/typing sites available to the students via our Library Page. Students in third grade could benefit from the additional practice at home. We do not want their developing keyboarding skills to impact their ability to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. If you had not had a chance to explore Mrs. Bertoncini's page, check it out, she also recently shared a newsletter with more information about the technology resources available at Nayatt School https://www.smore.com/3aq9c
As always, we strive for balance at Nayatt, in all tools that help our learning, but we want families to know what is available to their child, both in and outside of school.
