Technology

  • Irene Lopez School believes that part of building learners in the 21st century involves integrating technology into daily learning.  Along with having a technology class as one of the 4 special area classes that all students attend, we also equipped with:

    • SMART Interactive Whiteboards in every classroom
    • 2 students:1 laptop ratio in grades 3rd-8th
    • Additional laptop carts available for Kinder-2nd grade use
    • Document cameras in every classroom 

    Teachers in grades 3rd-8th grade frequently utilize the following applications/programs to enhance learning in their classrooms:

    • Edmodo
    • NewsELA
    • Google Classroom
    • MobyMax
    • Study Island
    • Code.org

    Frequent exposure to technology is critical as well for assessment purposes.  Irene Lopez School utilizes online assessments such as Galileo and NWEA Map testing to assess students mastery of grade level standards throughout the school year.  Students in grades 3rd-8th are also required to take the AZMerit exams annually, which are administered online.
