Technology Integration
Instructor: Mrs. Roubie   
At Lake Ridge Elementary School, we use technology to support and enhance the teaching and learning of Virginia Standards of Learning objectives.

Technology support is provided by Mrs. Roubie, the Instructional Technology Resource Teacher, who provides instructional and training support, and Mrs. Pittman, our Technology Support Specialist, who provides hardware and network support througout the school

We have a computer lab with 28 computers and two printers. Our classroom teachers have scheduled time in the computer lab weekly, and also use technology to enhance instruction in their classrooms. We have laptops, digital cameras, Flip cameras, digital microscopes, student response systems, and document cameras, all of which may be checked out by any teacher.   Homeroom classes have Promethean ActivBoards for daily use.
