Using the Arts to Teach STEM
Sharing Love for Robotics
Connectivity on Buses and at Home
The grant also allows FHSD to provide web access and devices on school buses. This maximizes learning for students, with long bus rides. Students log on to tablet computers with apps that support student literacy and numeracy skills. Partnered with their bus service provider, the tablets are checked in and out to students daily and used during the school day for intervention or extension activities. The apps on the devices are the only programs that students can access. The students are given certain tasks or assignments while classroom teachers and parents check them for completion and accuracy. Schools then use these reports to prepare lessons, view individual student achievement and more effectively meet the needs of the students.Bonus: IL will partner with River Roads Lutheran to bring robotics to underserved students.
