Students have Access to more Technology
The Kellogg Youth Fund, the Lon Morey Family Fund and the Community Impact Fund helped fund the project “Laptops for Literacy.” This project added 32 new laptops and because of this addition, teachers are now able to test multiple classrooms at a time. The test windows are limited and more computers allow for more students to test in a timely manner. Teachers can now test in their classrooms, so that during technology classes other instructional goals can be obtained such as keyboarding, Microsoft word, PowerPoint, etc.
The 88 students, kindergarten through sixth grade, now have greater access to the computers instead of just during their technology class. This will help the teachers be able to do more projects and testing in a shorter amount of time. Students will now have greater accessibility to research, write papers and create PowerPoint presentations.
