Technology at Bancroft!

We are excited about new technology applications at our school!
 
Each sixth grade classroom now has a SmartBoard (interactive whiteboard). Our teachers are learning all the amazing things they can do to engage students in learning using the SmartBoards.
 
Our third graders each have access to an iPod Touch in class. They use a variety of math, reading, and writing apps to strengthen their skills.
 
All of our teachers in grades 2-6 have audio systems that help the students hear the teacher better. The teacher wears a microphone, and a speaker is located in the back of the room. We have also ordered these systems for our kindergarten and first grade classes, so they will arrive soon. An additional microphone can be used by students when they make presentations to the class. 
 
Each of our classrooms also has a special projector which connects to the teacher laptop. This enables the teacher to project a variety of things on the screen for the students to view. These projectors take the place of old film and slide projectors, DVD players, VCRs, and even the big-screen televisions.
