In becoming a 21st Century School, Skycrest installed nineteen Promethean Activboards for all K5-8th grade classrooms. Skycrest also purchased student response systems to work in conjunction with the Promethean boards. These hand-held devices empower students to take an active role in their own learning and enable the teacher to connect with an entire class, while teaching based on the needs of individuals.
- Students in grades 1st-4th use the Activote.
- Students in grades 5th-8th use the Active Expression. Not only can students answer multiple choice or binary questions, but also they can "text" the answer to the teacher.
Mobile iPad Lab
Teachers have the availability to check out a class set or individual iPads for use in their classroom. The iPads are used to enhance their subject matter or provide differential instruction to students who may need extra help or to those who may need advanced challenges. No matter how the teacher uses them, they are well received by students. iPads are an excellent classroom tool that keep students on task and engaged.
BrainPOP, Accelerated Reader, StarMath, Learning Ally, and Discovery Education Streaming Plus are online services subscribed to by Skycrest. These websites provide engaging, supplemental resources for teachers to incorporate in their lessons.
