PA Elementary School Uses Tech to Reimagine Classwork

The Belmont Hills Elementary School has enlisted Apple iPads to help and inspire students with everything from spelling to guided reading, according to the Education Week article “What Good Technology Use Looks Like in the Early Years.” The school believes that these devices are key to sparking collaborative spirit in students, jumpstarting their communication skills, and allowing them to work at their own pace. A video on the Education week website shows a colorfully clad youngster playing what at first glance looks like a regular computer game, but turns out to be a math tutorial from the educational website Dreambox. Although these tools may seem like a drastic shift in the structure of the classroom, they’re “just another way of giving the students a little bit more of what they need” according to a Belmont Hills Elementary School teacher.
