This week many Phoenix Academy students had the opportunity to try out six new Samsung Chromebooks. The Chromebooks are part of a pilot program to test the computers for use with Read Naturally our fluency and comprehension curriculum.
Thanks to funds raised last May during Omaha Gives, Phoenix Academy is working on adding computers to our Ann Mactier Reading Lab. The goal is to have fifteen computers in the lab and for the students to use the Chromebooks to access Read Naturally Live, the online version of Read Naturally. If the pilot program is successful, we plan to purchase more Chromebooks and replace the CD players and CDs that we currently use. So far the students and staff think the Chromebooks are great!
