Instructional Technology

At Baseline Elementary we believe a great way to prepare our students for life is through teaching 21st century skills through technology. Come over to Baseline and see what our students are creating. You might find students creating a movie, designing a chart using a spreadsheet, using an app to practice and reinforce skills, or collaborating with a peer to research a topic on the Internet. 

  • Every classroom has a SMARTBoard. Our teachers are able to develop interactive presentations to enhance learning. Through use of these boards students are given a hands-on opportunity to manipulate the information, or create their own work in order to expand understanding of concepts. 

Baseline is proud to offer a lab with 30 computers, 1 Netbook cart and 1 iPad cart. Teachers reserve the computer lab for their entire class, or they can check out a cart for smaller group activities. Our students have access to a variety of software, including, Microsoft Office 2007, SMART Notebook, PhotoStory, Movie Maker, and Internet Explorer.

Each of our classrooms is equipped with at least 4 student computers including cable Internet access. Often students are seen using these computers throughout the day especially while rotating through reading and math workshop.

In addition we have some great technology such as Flip cameras, document cameras, and web cameras which affords students an chance to connect with each other and those outside of our community with Skype.
