Technology

The ability to use and feel familiar with technology is as crucial a skill as reading, writing and math. Today's students must be comfortable with all types of technology to keep in step with the modern world.

At Lake Drive, we are fortunate that we can provide access to technology as part of our day-to-day teaching. Our inventory includes a variety of equipment such as iPads, laptops, desktops, SmartBoards, digital cameras and camcorders, data projectors and digital voice recorders. Lake Drive's building-wide network, using both Ethernet and wireless components, is part of Mountain Lakes School District's wide-area network.

Mobile labs, containing iPads, MacBooks and Chromebooks, have enabled students to work individually. SmartBoards, interactive white boards, have been installed into all of our classrooms at Lake Drive, Briarcliff, Wildwood and the High School. The SmartBoard, with touch screen functionality, has enhanced classroom instruction and student participation, and has proven to be a vital component to the classroom environment.

All of our students have exposure to technology on a daily basis. Our upper elementary and middle school students are taught, via Google Apps for Education and a variety of internet-based programs, to use office-oriented and multimedia software. They are also learning to code using the system developed at code.org. In addition, students are taught to be responsible digital citizens. Our technology curriculum supports the acquisition of 21st century skills.
