FourFourtwo Lincoln Elementary’s students are getting a better education with new iPads, tablets and computer games.
The school recently added two new computer labs, an updated digital learning center and a video game lab.
It’s been a long time coming.
The district announced in November that Lincoln Elementary would be the first school district in the nation to have its first fully computerized learning center.
The center has been designed to teach students to use iPads and Google Glass.
Students are learning to play the popular online video game League of Legends.
The games are taught in a “digital classroom” in the lab.
They’re learning how to use the technology and using it to create and manage games.
School Superintendent Chris McCue says students will have access to digital tools and resources for all their learning.
“I’m really excited about this technology, this learning, the kids coming through this classroom are so engaged in the learning,” McCue said.
Students also have access a library, computer lab and video games.
McCue said they are using the technology to help teach students math, science, English and social studies.
He says the digital learning lab will help students build better math and reading skills.
