All classrooms at Wyoming Elementary are equipped with a fully networked multimedia computer workstation, a VCR, and a 32-inch television monitor on which a student-produced live news show is broadcast each morning.
Students have access to a computer lab complete with 33 eMac computers. Another “Mini lab” of 4 iMacs is located in the Media Center for small groups of students to use.
The Wyoming Elementary Parent Teacher Association has generously donated 26 Macintosh iBooks on two mobile carts. These, along with 40 iBooks purchased by the school district, are wirelessly networked and available for teachers to use with their students in their classrooms. These wireless laptops are used almost every day for activities ranging from internet research, to creating iMovies and Power Point presentations.
Technology at Wyoming Elementary is integrated to enhance existing curriculum. Students are taught formal keyboarding skills beginning in fourth grade, and use word-processing, spreadsheets, databases and the internet in all grade levels. Interactive software programs are used to reinforce skills taught in the classroom.
In the spring of 2007 we began to implement interactive white boards into the classrooms. We currently have one in each regular ed. classroom, the music room, media center, and two in special education. We will begin the 2011-2012 school year with twenty iPad2's; ten in the special needs classroom and ten in the media center.
