OLA is committed to keeping our students up-to-date with computer technology.
Students in grades K-8 are taught general computer skills and concepts. This includes age-appropriate internet safety, coding, keyboarding, presentations, research, spreadsheets and word processing. We utilize Chromebooks and Google Applications for Education such as Classroom, Docs, Gmail, Sheets, Slides, etc. Content controls are in full effect on all computers and there is an established use protocol and standards of conduct agreement to which each student and parent/guardian must adhere.
Other activities/contests that the students participate in are Hour of Code, Scholastic Challenge and Bebras Challenge. These activities/contests are national events that test general knowledge as well as logical thinking.
In a world of ever-changing technology, OLA’s goal is to prepare students for a future where life-long learning is essential.
