School Technology Web Page

Welcome to the Park Crossing School Technology page. This page is intended to provide you with a brief overview of the Technology equipment that is used regularly at Park Crossing as well as information about the Alabama Technology Courses of Study.

Mobile Technology:
Each classroom at Park Crossing has access to checkout Chromebook carts and use them in the classroom for lessons.  Each teacher selects age appropriate and subject specific activities for the students to complete while on the chromebooks.

Computer Programs or Resources Used:

Park Crossing uses Google Apps, Edguenity, and has Access classes for students.  

Smart Boards or Touch Panels:
Every classroom at Park Crossing is equipped with an interactive Smart Board and digital projector.  Teachers utilize the Smart Boards for hands on, interactive activities frequently. In addition, the Smart Boards allow teachers to display digital resources to the students during the course of instruction.  Many of the textbook publishers provide digital content that can be used to enhance instruction. Our teachers also frequently seek out additional resources. Online journals and publications, videos, and websites are just a mouse click away and can easily be displayed for the entire class on the Smart Board.

Technology For Assessments:
Park Crossing will be completing the required yearly State Assessments on computers. This is a shift from the traditional paper and pencil testing forms from years past.  The mobile Chromebook labs, career tech labs and the library allows us to complete the testing in a timely manner.

Technology For Communication:
Technology plays an important role during the instructional day at Park Crossing.   In addition to the ways previously mentioned, teachers routinely use email or text to communicate with parents.  Each teacher is also encouraged to use Remind 101 or other means of communicating with parents. Our principal is able to send out group calls to all the parents to provide necessary information in a timely manner.

The school’s web page and our facebook page are also valuable resources for important information about the school as well as upcoming events.  They also provide pictures capturing the wonderful things that take place here at Park Crossing. Webpage updates are made frequently, often multiple times per week.   

Technology Instruction:
At Park Crossing, we strive to fully address the standards of the Alabama Technology Course of Study.  Computer lab activities cover many of the standards; however some are more easily covered in the general classroom during the course of regular instruction or with special projects assigned by the core subject teacher.

Provide below are links to the Alabama Technology Courses of Study for both Technology courses of study.
