Technology - Mr. Houle and Mr. Kochanek

Welcome to Technology at Paper Mill Elementary school!  We have a wonderful lab here with 34 desktop computers. The school also has 2 carts of Chromebook laptops and 1 iPad cart that are used by students in all grades throughout the building. We’re 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. This is going to be a be great year!

Notice: We use headphones quite a bit in the computer lab. It is helpful (and more sanitary) if each student brings in his/her own pair of inexpensive headphones to use in the lab during the school year. We collect the headphones at the beginning of the year (a notice went home in September), and store them in class baskets. Only your child uses his/her own headphones. For those students who do not bring in a pair, they may borrow a limited number of shared headphones during the class. 

We suggest that younger children bring in headphones that go over the head, as earbuds are much more difficult for them to wear. Older children may bring in over-the-head or earbuds. IMPORTANT: Please make sure your child tries them on and can wear them comfortably before sending them into school.
