All 5th and 6th grade students at Brilliant Star School will be assigned laptops/ipads for use in the classroom courtesy of the Federal Program at PSS.
Whether we like it or not technology will start to dominate a larger portion of our lives. While we chose to limit screen time to strictly functional use, it is hard to deny the technological advances and their uses in the classroom. Students can use their devices for online research, report writing, preparing presentations, Achieve 3000, etc. The laptops/ipads will stay in class unless special projects require the students to take them home occasionally. The laptops/ipads should be ready for pick up by next week.
