First-grade students at MES are having so much fun using technology to enhance their learning in the classroom. Thanks to a partnership with the AIU Lending Library, students have been able to use Osmo to practice word building, math facts, reasoning, problem solving, and creative thinking skills. They are also learning to create simple codes with Bee Bot, a programmable robot that follows commands. First Grade has been utilizing Google Chromebooks and iPads to provide more opportunities for personalized learning in the classroom, allowing children to explore areas of interest and develop their academic skills. Students are acquiring 21st-century skills with these technology innovations in the classroom!
