Technology classes are taught by:  Mr. Barriale (cbarriale@fairlawnschools.org) at Edison, Warren Point, and Westmoreland; Mrs. Hennion (chennion@fairlawnschools.org) at Forrest and Radburn; and Mrs. Mottola (kmottola@fairlawnschools.org) at Edison, Lyncrest, and Milnes.

Grade 1 classes come to the technology labs once a month for a 30-minute session.  An introduction to the parts of a computer and log on/off procedures are taught, along with mouse skills, educational games, and coding activities.

Students in grade 2 spend 30 minutes twice a week in the computer labs to learn the skill of touch typing on a keyboard using TypingClub.  A variety of educational games and coding activities are infused through various applications.

Students in grades 3-5 spend 45 minutes once a week in the technology labs.  Proper keyboarding techniques are reinforced, coding activities continue, and students learn a variety of computer applications using Microsoft Office software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) or G-Suite.

Elementary technology instruction is based on New Jersey Student Learning Standards.  In-class projects are assigned, which may be aligned with the Social Studies and Science curricula in grades 3-5.
