Turner High School
Turner’s project, “English Is Essential,” focused on increasing English test scores. Team members purchased an interactive whiteboard for the secondary English teacher.
An interactive whiteboard made it possible for the instructor to teach from her computer and use the whiteboard as a touchscreen. The interactive nature of the whiteboard allowed the teacher to create a collaborative classroom and better engage student learning by using interactive text, images, sound and video in her lessons.
In addition, the team is planning a community demonstration of the new technology to encourage more parents to become active partners with the school system.
