Students in K-8 attend technology classes in our iMac computer lab. The technology class curriculum is composed of three primary strands: Programming Concepts, Physical Computing, and Engineering and Design.
Outside of technology class, productivity skills and digital citizenship are taught in authentic academic contexts, allowing students to develop these skills and understandings in a way that is more meaningful to them. Students in grades 3-8 are issued their own Chromebook, which allows them to have ready access to technology whenever the need arises. K-2 student have access to a shared set of iPads.
Additionally, we offer a variety of topics in our MS electives class. 3D printing jewelry, Zero Robotics, and Scratch game creation are a few of the recent offerings. Peabody also has a First Lego League team, open to students in grades 4-8, which competes against other schools each fall.
