Sherwood Elementary recently issued 21 laptops to students, beginning with the youngest learners in grade two. The devices, housed in a mobile cart, will float from classroom to classroom on a rotating schedule, providing the students with access to all of the education-enhancing websites currently available in the computer lab.

“Our students are now connected during their school day, which brings them a world of opportunities,” said Principal Maureen Martin

Teachers, as well as staff in network operations and the library media center have been busy implementing the technology with the students. In teacher Robb Le Vien’s classroom, students have used the laptops to explore biographies and the water cycle with Brain Pop Jr.

“With the implementation of this initiative, Sherwood continues to align with the school’s Standards of Excellence Committee 2015-2106 goal of emphasizing STEM in the classroom,” said Le Vien.
