While in school, all EFS students receive technology enrichment once a week. To create their tech projects, the students use various programs with tools such as laptops, iPads, Apple pencils, and 3D printers. To meet the current Technology Standards, various skills are taught at each of the grade levels.
Kindergarten students work on basic computer skills while incorporating their everyday curriculum of reading and writing.
First-grade through sixth-grade work on interdisciplinary projects related to their core subject areas. These projects have been created in conjunction with the classroom teachers and once completed, are shared with the rest of the school community. Some of the projects include creating movies, slideshow presentations, websites, and 3D printed objects.
In addition to tech projects, Essex Fells School has put an emphasis on typing skills. In grades 2-6 the students use various keyboarding programs and in grades K & 1 they are working on fun websites that allow the students to become familiar with key placement on the keyboard.
