Tech Tubs


Technology aids in the ability of students on the Alternate Curriculum to reach their educational goals. It acts as a reinforcer in the areas of reading readiness skills, Sentence building, reading comprehension, and math concepts. The Unique Learning System subject matters are introduced by using technical support. It is also used to play videos that relate to thematic vocabulary words. They tend to comprehend each vocabulary word more efficiently when provided with a visual aid. Students are fully engaged when subject matters are introduced to them on technology and are more eager to learn. They tend to view their learning process as enjoyable entertainment versus a redundant less appealing teaching method
