Technology at Withrow

Withrow students are given many opportunities to use educational technology to enhance their learning experiences. We have iPads available at every grade level that offer dozens of engaging educational apps. We continue to update and add technology throughout the year. In addition, students engage with digital curriculum often. Much of the district supported curriculum is accessed online. Programs such as Go Math, Lexia Reading, Imagine Learning, and Read 180 are web-based and students utilize iPads and desktop computers to complete assignments daily. Such programs provide students with  personalized learning experiences, immediate feedback, and instruction that is tailored to meet their specific learning needs. Teachers are also able to access data immediately that helps them to design future assignments and drive instruction. 
Below is a list of the apps used at Withrow Elementary and across LEUSD. You can also find them here. Many of these apps are free and can be downloaded onto devices at home. We encourage students to explore these apps as they are great learning tools!
Student safety online is a top priority. To learn more about digital safety at LEUSD, please visit the district web page on Digital Citizenship here.
Did you know that all students have an Office 365 school account? This amazing resource provides all of our students with office programs such as Word, Excel, in-district email, and so much more! Learn more about your student's Office 365 account here, and use the directions attached below to log-in.

The Purpose and Power of Instructional Technology:
We don't use technology  just for fun in the classroom (although students often have fun when learning with technology). The educational technology offered in our classrooms is thoughtfully considered. Teachers aim to utilize technology that will help students engage in meaningful learning experiences that would otherwise not be possible. Moreover, students are able to gain the 21st Century technology skills they will need to be successful in career and college. At Withrow, we focus on the SAMR model (below) when making decisions about what technology to introduce to our students and how to design learning experiences.
Cyber Responsibility and Safety: The Lake Elsinore USD is committed to cyber safety for our students. Likewise, our students are taught about their own digital footprint through cyber responsibility lessons. 
The gold standard in Cyber Responsibility Education for students is the Common Sense Media Curriculum. To help our students learn about how to communicate safely online, and to learn how to use the Internet in a responsible and safe manner, many teachers use  the Common Sense Media lessons and activiites.
