Learning Resource Center

Learning Resource Center

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 a place in which students gather and foster a love of reading, develop their online literacy skills, practice good digital citizenship and engage with STEM projects.  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 allow for further investigation.  Students also visit the library with their classroom teacher once a week at a designated time to select books to check out and enjoy at home.

CCSD 59 is providing each student in grades K-2 with a Nexus 7 tablet and each student in grades 3-5 with a Chromebook Spin 11.  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 their future.

Once devices are 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 if parents choose to participate.

The following links outline what the protection plan covers on the device and information about the different digital tools themselves:

Innovative Learning Technology Tools

–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.  Mrs. McLaughlin visits us in the Spring to hear several of the nominated Monarch Award books with our K-3 students.The Monarch is designed to encourage children to read critically and become familiar with children’s books, authors and illustrators.  Her last visit to Devonshire is at the end of the school year in which she shares and outlines the summer reading program that will be available to students eager to maintain their reading skills throughout the summer months.
