The technology program at Lafayette enhances the school’s core curriculum and provides students with the most up-to-date technology skills based on the ISTE standards.
Designed in collaboration with the DCPS educational technology department and the Lafayette technology committee, our program empowers students with vital technology proficiencies that will serve them throughout their academic careers.
Lafayette students participate in bi-weekly technology classes that focus on project-based, multimodal student-centered learning. For example, students in 1st grade conduct research using applications to produce an aesthetically-enriched document, while 5th graders develop multimedia websites using online tools. The Lafayette technology program also strives to engage in projects side-by-side with homeroom classes, to conduct professional development opportunities for staff, and to provide enrichment opportunities for students, such as the Hour of Code and the Broadcasting Club.
