Page Hilltop Elementary: Interactive Technology in the Health Classroom and Library

This health information outreach funding proposal is to obtain stateoftheart 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, totalling 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 chromebooks, 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.
