Computers

Welcome to Technology at Paper Mill Elementary school, my name is Mr. Houle, and we have a wonderful lab here with 30 Chromebook computers. The school also has 4 carts of Chromebooks and 2 iPad carts that are used by students in all grades in classrooms throughout the building. I’m excited about the teaching possibilities with all the computers, applications and websites and looking forward to incorporating new common core standards and project based learning into our lessons.

Also this year I will be presenting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) lessons in the regular classroom as well as some enrichment lessons here in the computer lab.

Here are some educational sites for you and your family:
