Technology Integration
Instructor: Mrs. Roubie

At Lake Ridge Elementary School, we use technology to support and enhance the teaching and learning of Virginia Standards of Learning objectives.

Technology support is provided by Mrs. Roubie, Instructional Technology Coach, who provides instructional and training support, and Mr. Puza, our Technology Support Specialist, who provides hardware and network support throughout the school

We have laptops, digital cameras, Flip cameras, digital microscopes, student response systems, and document cameras, all of which may be checked out by any teacher.   

Classrooms have Promethean ActivBoards/ActivPanels, document cameras, and student computers for daily use.  2nd graders each have a Kindle to use.  Students in grades K and 1 have several Kindles and iPads, and we have nine laptop carts that are shared among 3-5 classrooms

Each homeroom class will have one class period reserved in the computer lab per week.  Teachers may also check out sets of laptops or iPads for use in their classrooms.

Our Morning News is broadcast each morning by a team of 5th grade students who serve as our anchors and run our teleprompter and technical program.
