Tuscany Heights ES Library Annual Report 2016-2017: Technology Integration

Technology Integration

At Tuscany Heights, we integrate technology into library lessons for each grade level.  For example, students frequently use Chromebooks, desktop computers and iPads to access district resources for research and pleasure.  Furthermore, students are encouraged to use Nexus Tablets or personal devices to access OverDrive, NEISD's electronic library, which gives students the ability to checkout eBooks, audiobooks and read-alongs from anywhere with internet connectivity. 

Examples

  • Hour of Code--students frequently code using library computers, iPads and Chromebooks.  We participate in Hour of Code each year with all grade levels, K-5.
  • Research: Library Databases are accessed from home and library computers, iPads and Chromebooks.
  • Makerspace Kits from Library Services:  Students and teachers have experimented with drones, Ozobots, Dot and Dash robots, etc.
  • eBooks and audiobooks: OverDrive and Capstone are promoted to students, staff and the THE community.
