All classroom teachers have a laptop computer running Windows 10, a mounted projector and SMART Board interactive whiteboard. Each teacher has access to the following: an electronic grade book, the Internet, an online card catalog for the library, STAR, Accelerated Reader, email, Office 365 and many other tools and resources.
All classrooms have iPads available for student use. They are used for STAR testing, Accelerated Reader, Istation and other programs. Students are also able to access the library card catalog. Each classroom has access to the Internet and many other online resources.
During the 17-18 school year Stephens Elementary added 19 Apple Ipads. The Ipads are used in our 5th grade science classroom. All 5th grade students can access different programs such as: Istation, Microsoft Word, the internet (for research), and different science programs that correlates with their curriculum.
The Ipads are part of a grant that the Polk County School Board offers to upper grade science classrooms throughout the county.
