Technology Supports Learning

Middle School students at the Urban Promise School are enjoying multiple benefits from the recent grants providing 13 iPads. As students are learning more about how to use this wonderful learning tool, they are also learning about chemistry, writing, geology and more.

Twice a week Mrs.Chris Shields visits to teach Middle School students how to use the iPads. They are using various educational apps including Keynote for power point type presentations, and The Elements: A Visual Exploration of the periodic table for studying chemistry. Students are focusing, writing and thinking with increased concentration as they use the iPads.

Teachers are noticing the benefits of using technology to enhance learning. Thank you to Chris Shields for sharing her love of technology with our students! It’s making a world of difference as you can see in the pictures.
