Distance Education with Terrific Third

Distance learning has come to ACS! When fellow classmate, Andrew, was out of school recovering from surgery that didn’t stop him from attending classes. Andrew, using SKYPE technology, participated in both math and science classes. Not only were the students able to speak with Andrew and send him recovery wishes, they were able to compete against Andrew in daily Mental Math activities. The students used dry erase boards while Andrew typed his answers on the computer. His answers were displayed in front of the classroom for checking by fellow classmates and Mrs. Bernstein. Using the ELMO document camera, Mrs. Bernstein was able to upload page images so that Andrew could take his turn reading and following along with the science discussion. Sister Yosaphata came in and saw what we were doing, said hello to Andrew and was amazed with how technology can bring learning into the home!
