Teaching approach:

Students who learn to use the technology of today will be better prepared to learn the technology of tomorrow. Even very young students can, with direction, learn to apply technology to enrich their learning.

Students learn by doing.

Outstanding achievements:

Mr. Lane was instrumental in obtaining funding that brought technology to the school.

All students from Grade 1-6 create and maintain their own website where they publish a portfolio of their work. This is seen as the most positive results of the technology program at Mary Queen of Peace Elementary School.

While working full time as a Learning Resource Teacher, Mr. Lane maintains a network of 50 computers, often after school and on weekends. He opens the computer lab during recess, lunch and after school so students can complete their projects.

Students who have been involved in projects in previous years often finish their assigned work very quickly and take on extra projects.
