St. Joseph's Elementary: Interactive Technology in the Classroom
This technology funding proposal is to obtain state of the art technology in the science and health classrooms at Saint Joseph School in Webster, MA. Saint Joseph School serves student's pre-k through eighth grade, totaling approximately 200 students. This proposal is requesting funds to purchase tablets for students use and complete the wireless infrastructure necessary for use within the classrooms. Using the tablets, the students will be able to wirelessly share and compare their work from multiple devices at the same time a projector for all to see. Interactive lessons will transform the students into active learners, thereby increasing their academic achievement and health literacy. Evaluation at the end of lessons will determine if students are more engaged in the lessons and if comprehension increases. The technology department at Saint Joseph School will facilitate installation and maintenance of the requested technology.
