The students of St. Linus School started the new school year with major upgrades to technology within the school and its classrooms. Each classroom - 16 in total - is now equipped with Bright Links Interactive Projectors, helping to promote student collaboration, creativity and problem solving. Through the use of the Bright Links Interactive Projectors, the school's traditional whiteboards have been transformed into interactive tools where children can get hands-on learning in every subject. Students can now follow textbooks, watch educational videos, do presentations to the classroom, and take virtual tours of locations throughout the globe, including the rainforest, Jamestown, and Shakespeare's England.
And, the incoming classes of preschool and kindergarten are now equipped with new iPads, which will be utilized to enhance the language arts and math curriculum. Approximately 25 iPads loaded with apps to reinforce and enrich school lessons are now available to the three preschool classes and two kindergarten classes of St. Linus School.
