As part of the H.E.R.O. (Helping Everyone Reach Out) project at West Side, a group of helpers called “Techsperts” united together for hands-on technology support when needed in classrooms.
This team of sixth graders, Muhammad Hajee, Milan Lustig, Raymond McNulty, Peter Munyak and Ryan Smith, were asked to help teach second graders about the new Promethean Boards which are replacing the SMARTBoards in the district. They demonstrated functionality of the Promethean Board, navigating apps, playing games, and writing their names. The second graders loved taking turns and are now looking forward to using this new technology next year which supports learning across all curriculum areas.
