We all know that teenagers use technology 24/7 in their everyday life. However, when students step their foot on to school grounds they lose that privilege of using technology. But now that is coming into change. In the School District Palm Beach County teachers got a chance to become Google Teachers by going through a learning course called Trailblazers to implement into classroom room learning. Technology professionals have trained over a 1000’s of new trailblazers and over 700 hundred from last year. And with teachers reaching their completion goal in their course the teachers get Chromebook carts filled with Chromebooks to integrate technology with their students. And since the new Chromebooks are a new thing in classrooms students rarely get used to paper. This is a good advantage because it makes classroom learning fun. Also with The Penny Sales Tax from last year with the donations from parents teachers well not also be getting Smart Boards. “We want to make sure that all our classrooms are outfitted with the latest technology. Teachers are really going to like this and to make their lessons come to life” says Dr. Elvis Epps Principal at Lake Worth Comm. High School. With the new technology, this helps students when they don’t have internet or a computer at home which is very helpful because of there no excuse why you couldn’t do it. The technology Trailblazer Program really helps students visually see what the complicated problems are that you struggle with. “When they get to pull out a Chromebook or that get to use the interactive flat panel, it’s so much exciting to them than handing them a piece of paper and pencil and a worksheet,” says Blake Bennet at Wellington Landings Middle School. So yes classroom learning with technology is a great thing for helping students to succeed in school.
