Welcome to Roxboro Road Elementary Computer Technology!
All of our students from Kindergarten to Grade 4 receive training and utilize many computer programs to enhance learning. Most students first learn how to use Microsoft Word to learn the keyboard and for basic word processing. Other programs the students will learn are Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft Powerpoint, and Microsoft Exel.
All classrooms, offices and other areas in our building have networked computers that can access the Internet. Our computer Lab is located within the Library. The Lab has 28 computers so whole classes can receive the same instruction and work on the same projects as a whole group. Each 4th Grade classroom is equipped with a class set of chromebooks. 2nd and 3rd Grade classrooms share 2 chromebook carts, each with 25 chromebooks.
In addition, each Kindergarten and 1st grade classroom is equipped with 6 Apple iPads. These devices can be used throughout the day and perfect use for centers.
4th Grade students are in charge of the morning announcements every day! These students are chosen toward the end of their 3rd grade career and trained on how to use the tech equipment. WROXEL TV is ran entirely by the students - from the news anchors, to the camera, to the teleprompter - the students are the ones in charge of it all!
