Thanks to the generosity of Albert Merck and the Merck Foundation, the Kennedy-Longfellow School collaborated with Lesley University
to develop an immersive approach to teaching and learning which integrates technology into every aspect of the curriculum and builds students’ 21st Century Skills. Through this partnership, technology has transformed the roles and relationships of students and teachers.
In support of this goal, all K – 5 students currently have 1:1 iPad access in their classrooms loaded with grade-level apps – as well as classroom laptops to use as needed. Also available are a mobile laptop cart, SmartBoards, document cameras, flip video cameras, and digital cameras. Also available are Green Screen technology, robotics equipment, computer programming tools, a 3-D Printer, digital cameras, document cameras, and flip video cameras.
Although the grant-funded elements of the partnership concluded at the end of the 2014 – 15 School Year, the
collaboration and relationship with Lesley University will continue as our students and teachers help bring the “Maker” movement to public school
and higher education.
