Laptops and smartboards usher in new era
An order of extra laptop computers and the installation of 11 smartboards will provide technology-assisted learning at Ettalong Public School.
Principal Ms Lynn Balfour said they would help usher in a new era of technology-assisted learning at the school.
"New smartboards were installed in classrooms this week and I'm not sure who is most excited, the students or the teachers," she said.
"My plan is to replace all old boards with the latest technology, as soon as possible.
"We have also ordered extra laptops for classroom use.
"Most children can swipe a screen but keyboarding skills are important and need practice.
"Laptops provide word processing skills which become more important as the child progresses through each school year," Ms Balfour said.
