Dave Thiessen, Technology Specialist for the MFNERC has initiated a one year pilot project with a split Grade 1/2 classroom at George Saunders Memorial School in York Factory Cree Nation. Mr. Thiessen believes that the tablets will be a great benefit for teaching ELA and Math for early-years students. At this age, Mr. Thiessen believes, that students will naturally grasp onto utilizing a touchscreen. With a split Grade 1 and Grade 2 class the Para-educator can work the tablets with one grade level while the teacher is focusing on the other. Technology is a big part of innovation in the 21st century classroom. Watch for further updates on this awesome project… Tablets in the Classroom!
