Instructional Technology

IMG_0040 - CopyWe are pleased to continue to provide the best instructional technology available in all of our classrooms.  Teachers use several Des Moines Public Schools approved software programs to help students grow in their math and reading skills.  Many of our students come from a variety of programs across the states.  Often a student may be coming from another placement facility.  We are proud of the work we do at Orchard Place School to try and close the educational gaps for our students.  Students work under close supervision with teachers and associates while using computers in their classrooms.  Teachers also have the latest technology to assist them with their instruction.  Each classroom has an Epson projector which allows the teacher to access their computer and show information on the screen for all students to see.  Students are able to walk up to the screen and interact with the images that are being projected.  This type of work is very engaging for students and fosters a positive learning environment.
