Students at Bluebonnet Elementary use technology everyday. Students use computers in the classrooms to work on reading, math, language arts, science, social students, and special projects. Each class is also scheduled in the computer lab every week to learn computer applications. Bluebonnet teachers follow the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Technology to guide the curriculum.


Students are trained every semester on the proper use of the Internet. All grade levels use the Internet for instructional activities. Students are not allowed to surf (search) the Internet. All sites are previewed by teachers or the technology instructional mentors before students can visit the site. Students are only allowed to explore preset links. The LISD Elementary Internet Resources site is maintained by LISD elementary technology instructional mentors. The LISD Technology Acceptable Use Policy is also available on the district website.
