Learning Resource CenterLearning Resource Center(es)

The mission of the Devonshire LRC is to have all students exposed to a variety of technology opportunities and learning experiences that will prepare our students for the challenges of the 21st century. We will encourage 21st century learning through student collaboration, student creation and integration of technology across the curriculum.

Welcome to the LRC!

Devonshire’s Learning Resource Center services all of our K-5 population.  The LRC is home to two computer labs and a library.  One lab houses desktop computers and the other Macbook laptops.  The students visit the instructional lab, Lab A, on a rotating basis.  Mrs. Orozco will see one class from each grade level for an entire week.  This extended time offers our students consistency and the flexibility to tackle somewhat larger projects and/or further investigate a variety of computer applications.  The second lab, Lab B, is a lab in which classes are assigned a specific day and time. Teachers come with their students to conduct research, publish work, create projects or explore learning websites  Students will visit the library with their class once a week at a designated time.

CCSD 59 is providing each student in grades K-2 with a Nexus 7 tablet and each student in grades 3-5 with a Nexus 7 tablet and Chromebook.  These devices will provide students with the opportunity to acquire the skills to collaborate, communicate, think critically and create.  All skills that will equip them for the future.

Students in grades 3-5 will have the opportunity to take their devices home.  The devices are an educational tool and should be used in that capacity. Once issued, students are responsible
for taking excellent care and caution in the protection, care and use of the devices. Students
are responsible for any damage that occurs while the device is off the district premises. CCSD 59 is offering an optional device protection plan.

 

 The following links outline what the protection plan covers on the devices themselves:

–Please note that parents/students carry the full liability without the Protection Plan.

News from DPPL

Devonshire School works very closely with the Des Plaines Public Library school liaison librarian, Mrs. McLaughlin. Mrs. McLaughlin frequents our school throughout the year.  She visits in October and conducts  book talks to our students from the 4/5 classes.  She previews the Rebecca Caudill books that are nominated each year by young readers in Illinois.  There are twenty titles in total and Mrs. McLaughlin leaves Devonshire with energized readers. Devonshire’s library owns two copies of each of the nominated titles and students have the opportunity to place a book on hold if it is unavailable for check-out during their library time.  The Des Plaines Public Library owns many more copies of the Caudill titles and Mrs. McLaughlin will navigate the students through the DPPL’s website and show students how to place a hold on a book at the DPPL.  If a reader is eager to read a specific title, please utilize the services that the DPPL offers its patrons.
