Technology for the 2.0 Next Generation Classroom
Promethean ActivBoard (Interactive Whiteboard)
An interactive whiteboard is a peripheral device that connects to a computer and projector and allows for user interactivity with the projected images and activities. Students can interact during lessons to learn and harness skills. The boards are used daily by teachers and children to introduce new concepts, offer practice and curriculum support.
Document Cameras (Ipevo)
Document cameras are used to actively engage students in the learning process. Cameras project an image onto the whiteboard from materials placed beneath the lens. They are used to engage the visual intelligence in a wide variety of ways, such as: projecting science experiments, demonstrating letter formation or modeling appropriate use of new materials.
One 2 One Mate Interactive Laptop
One 2 One Mate interactive laptops possess all features and applications of commercial laptops. They offer the full experience of interaction with applications and games for math, reading, science and internet browsing in a safe and controlled environment for young learners.
Interactive Listening Stations
Listening stations allow for multiple students to listen and interact with books, music and read-a-longs.
Listening to recorded books allows a young reader the chance to hear the way that fluency and expression help a story come alive. It increases the ability to listen and attend. Reading is seen by the student as a source of pleasure as they are entertained and engaged in the dramatic performance of the recorded story or music.
