Instructional Technology at Pine Glen

As the 2015-2016 school year begins here in Burlington, we wish all of our students, parents, and volunteers a warm welcome.  Miss Carney, librarian and Mrs. Ardizzoni, instructional technology specialist, are excited to be teaching at Pine Glen and are looking forward to supporting many classroom projects!  Let's have a great year of learning.

Third Grade Using Google Drive / Docs
During the first week of school, our third graders were learning about using their Google Drive and Google Docs apps on their iPads.  Using the Google Docs app, students typed their response to the leading question of "What are you looking forward to in third grade?".  Using the strategy of "TTQA", meaning "turn the question around", we discovered our students are looking forward to third grade field trips, math, running the mile in physical education, science experiments, violin lessons, playing the recorder in music class, and walking in the "Turkey Trot", a Pine Glen School tradition.  This is sure to be a memorable year for our students.
