District’s Definition of Technological Literacy
Digital literacy is the ability to locate, organize, understand, evaluate, and create information using digital technology. Students of Clayton Ridge Community School District are encouraged to use technology as a tool to demonstrate essential skills: work ethic, collaboration, social responsibility, critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and problem-based learning.
What have our students been learning and creating with technology?
This Technology Showcase presentation highlights the instructional technology that is used for instruction and learning at Clayton Ridge CSD. Each teacher presents technology highlights from their classroom. Examples include programs, applications and devices used as well as amazing student created artifacts and examples.
Our 1 to 1 technology initiative currently includes a MacBook for every student in grades 3-12, iPad sets in grades PK-2.
The Hour of Code is at its core not about learning a brand new skill in just one hour. One hour isn’t enough to learn how to code. It's about increasing access to computer science by breaking stereotypes and opening doors. Some of you may learn programming concepts like loops, conditionals, or basic debugging through the Hour of Code. But a much more important goal is for you (and your teachers) to learn that computer science is fun — you can start at any age, in any classroom.
These coding tutorials and challenges are available all year, not just during the Week of Code. Students who are interested can access them at any time to further their knowledge with this URL: https://hourofcode.com/us/learn
