The Primary Curriculum (K-2)
Want to learn the basics of web design and development? Whatever your skill level, there is an option for you. In the spirit of our SMARTLab methodology, you will have the opportunity to choose between multiple development resources. There are options as simple as Google Sites, which uses templates to aid the design process, and as advanced as HTML5/CSS coding. There are also a couple options that fall somewhere in between. In some cases you will have the chance to familiarize yourself with our Learning Launchers by using them as your guide, and in other cases you will be provided with 3rd party tutorials and interactive resources to help you along the way. At all times, your facilitator will be available to offer design tips, technical assistance, encouragement, and support.

Extending the Elementary SmartLab
Repeat students may have visited the lab enough (several years through the grades), that they think they’ve done it all.  You and I know better….  There are the obvious ‘Extend Yourself’ slides at the end of each Learning Launcher…. Perhaps your questioning and encouraging of students will spark an idea…  There is a lot of software in your base image that lends itself to further investigation and challenge for students… perhaps new ideas combining Engagement skills, writing a new Learning Launcher, making a directions video will further challenge students …. The list goes on.  Come join us, maybe you have a great idea to share that has worked well.
