Community hands-on with tablet PC's at Cincinnati Country Day | Schools
INDIAN HILL, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati Country Day School, recognized as a world leader in teaching with technology, invites the community to learn more about the educational power of the school’s 1:1 tablet program on Jan. 23.
The event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the school, 6905 Given Road, Indian Hill. Anyone interested can find additional information or RSVP at www.countryday.net/go/tech.
Country Day Technology Director Rob Baker, along with Country Day students and teachers, will provide a hands-on experience with an array of digital inking tools. “A powerful benefit of the tablet is the ability for teachers to preserve precious class time,” Baker said. “The limitless possibilities of sharing digital content, including text, ink, images, video and screencasts, allow teachers to move lecture and rote instruction outside of their class time.”
Technology enables schools to “flip the paradigm,” said Country Day Head of School Robert Macrae. “If you can shift some of the classroom lecture and discussion time to home, that gives you more time in class to debate, to discuss, to struggle, to explain, to isolate what the individual issues are. It allows teachers to get right to the heart of the matter with the child and individualize the instruction.”
