COMPUTER LABS

 

 The purpose of the computer labs is to provide instruction and resources that enhance and support the academic program of the learners at Clarendon Park.

Learners in the Foundation Phase visit the Junior Computer Lab weekly for half an hour. The main learning and teaching support materials used are Computers 4 Kids for computer literacy, CAMI for maths and literacy and SuperSpell for phonics, but a variety of activities that tie in with special classroom themes are also enjoyed.

Learners in the Intermediate Phase and Senior Phase visit the Senior Computer Lab weekly for an hour. We use Computers 4 Kids and we also focus on keyboarding, word processing and research skills. Class teachers keep the computer lab teacher informed about special topics that their learners need to research.

 

 

The Senior Computer Lab is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 14.00 to 15.00 for learners who want to do research for projects and also for typing of homework or reports. Learners who wish to use the computers must write their names on the Computer Lab Booking Form which is posted on the notice board outside the computer room. The computer teacher is available to assist the learners with their research. The lab is also open every day during second break. The grade 7 computer monitors provide assistance where needed.
