Interactive Technology in the Health Classroom and Library

This health information outreach funding proposal is to obtain state of the art
technology in both the library and health classroom at the Page Hilltop Elementary School in Ayer, MA. Page
Hilltop, one of two elementary schools in the Ayer Shirley Regional School District (ASRSD),
serves students prek through fifth grade, totaling approximately 560 students. This proposal is
requesting two interactive projectors and laptops for use in both the health classroom and
library. Interactive projectors transform existing dry erase whiteboards or plain walls into
interactive workspaces. Using chrome books, the students will be able to wirelessly share and
compare their work from multiple devices at the same time to the projector for all to see. Once
installed, the projectors will be used in the library and health classroom, where the interactive
lessons will transform the students into active learners, thereby increasing their academic
achievement and health literacy. Assessments at the end of lesson units will show that when
students are more engaged in the lessons, comprehension increases. The technology
department at ASRSD will facilitate installation and maintenance of the requested technology.
