Technology and Digital Literacy

Lexington Public Schools is committed to the full utilization of technology to enhance student learning and staff instruction. Students enjoy exciting programs and systems that afford worldwide connectivity. Both stationary and portable computer labs, outfitted with state of the art equipment as well as a variety of educational and productivity applications and software, are available to students at all grade levels. In our schools, all instructional spaces are completely networked and have access to the Internet. All of the LPS school buildings have fully managed, robust wireless network to support teaching and learning.

Students in grades K through 12 are exposed to and naturally practice skills that are in the Massachusetts Digital Literacy and Computer Science Curriculum Framework. That document can be viewed HERE.

The standards presented in the frameworks cover the following:

• Address core concepts in four key domains: Computing and Society, Digital Tools and Collaboration, Computing Systems, and Computational Thinking.
• Integrate practices necessary to successfully act in a technological world.
• Present coherent progressions of core concepts and practices from grades K to 12.
• Complement other Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
