Our traditional-looking library recently received a 21st century boost. Thanks to a college and careers-focused grant, we purchased a TV, iPads, and an Apple TV. The purpose of this technology is collaboration. Students can work together, just as colleagues might strategize in modern workplaces, on projects from peer editing for creative writing class to preparation of presentations for formal proposals in TASC. The students are in the driver’s seat and are sure to come up with numerous other uses for this collaboration station in their JSHS media center.
