Colfax Charter Elementary is dedicated to preparing our students for the ever-changing world of technology. Our computer lab is equipped with new iMac 4k desktops, as well as each classroom is provided with Chromebooks or iPads so each student has technology at their fingertips. This is made possible by our Colfax community members and family’s generous donations in addition to a $35,000 technology grant from the district in 2015-2016!

 

In our computer lab we have contracted Computerwisekids Inc. to provide a comprehensive curriculum that follows the ISTE standards of Technology Education and 2018 CA Computer Science Standards for all grades. Our lab curriculum and lesson plans integrate technology into classroom assignments. Students learn a wide variety of applications and skills including but not limited to basic computer skills, word processing, presentations, animation, 3D modeling, robotics, coding and developing typing skills.

 

Each classroom is equipped with state of the art SMARTBoards, desktops for teacher and student use as well as full carts of iPads or laptops to supplement learning in the classroom. Due to having so much technology, Colfax is lucky to have their own on campus tech support. Colfax teachers are also given Professional Development each year for any new and exciting technology that we implement.

 

Colfax is committed to preparing our students for the new era of technology and the endless possibilities it has in store.
