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.
