Carpathia School has a computer lab that is fully equipped with computers, a scanner, colour laser printer, laser printer, and projector. The lab is open during school hours with classes rotating through on a predetermined schedule. (With equipment cleaned in between use.) All Carpathia participate in Dreambox, a math learning program every day that is also accessible to students at home and during remote learning. Students also have access to EPIC to support literacy learning and the WSD Digital Library (see our Library section for more information). Students using RAZ-kids ,Dreambox, and EPIC are encouraged to use the program at home on the computer or on a tablet. We also encourage families to get the Seesaw app to see what teachers are posting in their classroom.
Students also have access to WIFI, interactive whiteboards, iPads, laptops, and document cameras to support 21st century learning.
We use the app Seesaw Class and Google meets for 2021-2022 learning. Students will be reviewing all the above mentioned technology in September in the event that remote learning is ever required in the 2021-2022 school year. Please contact your child's classroom teacher for more information on what apps you should install. Students who require technology in the event of a suspension of classes should contact their classroom teacher for support. We also use Seesaw Family App as a digitized portfolio and communication tool for families.
