Math teacher Shirley Schneider’s PowerPoint display outlined the technology items, upgrades and cost projection for the plan.
Two examples to show how students are using technology were presented. They were an advanced PowerPoint presentation made by a first-grader at the Lyndeborough Central School and a video done by a high school math student to prepare for an upcoming test on geometry terms.
“It’s tough to schedule computer time,” said Schneider.
Only a few classes a day can use the computers and teachers can’t integrate technology every day.
The plan calls for rolling out more mobile labs at all schools and at the high school level by departments, and those departments can schedule lab time. The plan also addresses professional development.
“I’m not against technology. I would like to charge up that hill and get all the technology we can, but we need the ammo. We need to be able to justify it and how this will add value to the curriculum. Give me that and I’ll charge the hill,” said board member Harry Dailey.
