“West Oakland elementary school uses technology to help kids read”

Check out this recent article written for the Oakland Tribune by Katy Murphy:

Article excerpt:
"Scott, who has taught Prescott Elementary School children for nearly 40 years, now has an extra tool: Let's Go Learn, a Web-based, graphic-intensive literacy and mathematics program brought to the school by Oakland Technology Exchange-West, a West Oakland-based nonprofit. With donations and grants from area businesses, OTX-West distributes thousands of free, refurbished computers to homes, schools and community centers each year. It also helps middle school and high school families across the city acquire Internet service for free or cheaply"

    Technology has grown beyond expectations. I am so glad to read that the efficiency of today’s technology is been used to help kids read. The growth is constant and is unpredictable. So, we need to equip our next generation up to it. The post was very informative. Thanks and Regards! Flour in the Face Game
