The Green House Nursery School, has changed the way that technology is used in early childhood education, in the past 2 months.
The Green House Nursery School has used the two new iPads purchased through the Green House Nursery School Technology Expansion Project, supported by the Courageous Steps Project, to play games, listen to music, to use with young children with challenges to learn new skills, and to help staff to use this technology in an efficient way.
The Courageous Steps Project, is proud to announce, that the second phase of this expansion project will begin later this fall.
The second phase includes Apple Keyboards for the two iPads, a television screen, an Apple TV device that showcases the screen of the iPad, and the cables that will hook up to these devices. We also hope to assist the Green House in buying apps, and songs, for the iPads.
With the second phase beginning, this will allow the third phase, which will be made possible with help from the Galen Cole Family Foundation, to begin in the Winter of 2016. This will involve the foundation purchasing 5 more iPads for each staff member. These iPads will be coming in early 2016, and will be used in workspaces, in the classroom, and in other places at the Green House.
With that comes an exciting opportunity for the Courageous Steps Project to create something with the foundation, which will involve older students that have been to the museum, and will create a program that will hopefully give more early childhood education programs, the opportunity to receive technology for their programs.
As with anything that the Courageous Steps Project does, we are always looking for donations to help the project to accomplish these projects. Please visit our How to Donate page on our website to find out more on how to donate.
