Trinity is constantly adding or upgrading technology in our classrooms and finding new ways to teach and integrate technology into all our classes. Through the use of classroom interactive whiteboards our teachers can model correct handwriting techniques; demonstrate how to solve math problems step-by-step; and show students examples of artwork and Biblical archaeological sites via the Internet. Staff also use docu-cams to help present workbook and textbook content so students can see where the class focus is on a page or assignment and to demonstrate activities or experiments, especially small-scale activities that would otherwise be hard for all students to observe at the same time. Classroom projectors are used to display books so all students are able to see illustrations. Students also play a number of interactive learning games to hone math, reading, and language skills.
We continue to strive for quality instructional opportunities as we incorporate technology more and more in our day-to-day activities. Prior to instruction, teachers take time to research websites to provide the best and most appropriate resources for our children.
Trinity provides Kindergarten – 5th Grade students with a fully-equipped computer lab updated with the latest computer technology. Each student works on their own Chromebook. A new projector and screen allow connection to computers, video players, and CD players for presentations and sharing. A new sound system has been installed with speakers around the lab.
Computer curriculum is designed to enhance and extend lessons taught in the classroom and help students become familiar and comfortable with using a computer. Students learn basic keyboarding skills and learn to use the latest version of Microsoft Office to complete work for their classrooms. With supervision, Trinity students learn to use the internet productively and safely.
Elementary students work with all different types of robots to learn programming. Students learn how to program robots to move along a map, grid, or plot their own course.
