Back to school is looking a little different this year. Teachers aren’t teaching off of old black boards or projectors. Instead their using laptops, smart boards, and even iPads are allowing teachers to use new technology tools to help kids learn.
At least seven districts in our area will go high tech this year, and its not costing parents any more in taxes or registration fees. However, schools like Newman Catholic High School are moving towards newer tech tools to increase learning in the classroom.
James Delikowski, Principal at Newman Catholic High School said, “Using tools with a good education allows kids to learn about these new technologies to succeed in the world once they leave here.”
The Wausau School District is holding classes that teachers parents and children on the basics of iPad procedures. However, concerns have been raised that if technology is damaged while at home, the brunt of the payment falls on the parents.
Not to worry though. There is an option that if you feel like your child may damage the technology while at home, they can opt to keep it at school for safe keeping instead of risking a fee.
