Interactive Learning Tables encourages students to learn
On Thursday, February 11, The Mail visited Morrin School and spoke with Principal Don Yavis about their new Interactive Learning Tables.
Prairie Land Regional Division purchased these Interactive Learning Tables for schools in Morrin, Delia, Youngstown, Cessford, Altario, Consort, Hanna, and Veteran.
The Interactive Learning Table is actually a large computer, with several screens, which six students can use at the same time.
Programsg are entered, , such as Math or English, and the lesson appears on the screen with a special 7 digit number. Students can use the Interactive Learning Table or enter the number on their own personal mobile devices. Homework is also assigned, using this same method.
Pictured left, the students are learning their multiplication tables. This lesson is time sensitive, accepts only correct answers and it encourages the students to memorize the answers quickly.
Teachers and the tech-team will receive ongoing training, to ensure the system is being used proficiently.
