When returning from the summer, classroom staff and students were excited to find that the Oyster River School District had installed Promethean Boards in each of our Strafford Learning Center PEP classrooms. With the support of Celeste Best, Science Teacher at Oyster River High School, staff are off and running with this newest technology.
Funded through an ARRA grant, these boards are being used by teachers to create interactive games which support developing skills in the areas of identifying, matching, categorizing, memorizing, etc. Children are captivated by the cause and effect aspects and are quite taken with the experiences provided to them.
We are finding that these interactive whiteboards are yet another way that we are able to engage the district’s youngest learners.
