Welcome

Welcome to Alamo School Technology!

Our school lab encompasses 18 iMac computers and 14 PC's, generously funded by our parents.  Each student visits the lab weekly throughout the school year.  The goal of the lab is to support the curriculum via skill building and projects.  We use Microsoft Office Products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Kid Pix Deluxe 3D, as well as many educational websites.

  • K-3 for 30 minutes
  • 4th  for 45 minutes
  • 5th for 60 minutes
  • Computer Lab classes are in session, September through May.
  • Parents are welcome to observe & participate at any time.

Our K-4 teachers use iPads in their classes at their discretion to enhance their curriculum.  In addition, each class has three iPads at their disposal.

Our 5th grade classes have 1:1 iPads in their classrooms and share a group of 32 MacBook laptops.

 

Alamo School has 3D Printers...the possibilities are yet to be discovered!

Websites Used at Alamo

3D Printing - Be Creative!

Design objects for 3D Printing:

 Tinkercad

Recommended browser:  Google Chrome

You will need your parents to create a free account for you on the Tinkercad website.  Your parents will create an account for themselves as well.

Once you have created your design, bring in the *.stl file on a flash drive and we will print it out on our Cubify 3D Printer!

Note:  Edit your grid in Tinkercad and set it to 6" by 6" (the cube's plate size)


 

Learning to Code

Alamo School participates in the Hour of Code in December, "The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics."
