Project Lead the Way: Supplies and equipment for the nationally recognized pre-engineering program, Civil Engineering and Architecture.
OverDrive: a digital distributor of eBooks, audiobooks and other digital content which will provide Barrington 220 with a download service from more than 1,000 publishers. This service facilitates the integration of eBooks and other digital content into the school libraries. OverDrive resources enhance student engagement through the technology to which they are accustomed. Students can read books on their own personal devices or school-assigned devices like an iPod or Kindle.
Barrington High School Interactive Document CamerasA document camera can enhance instruction for all students by extending the use of the SMART Board, actively engaging students in the learning process, and providing a medium for immediate and authentic feedback on a student's work. Student work can be displayed to the entire class which can facilitate editing, revising, modeling, and peer reviewing. Worksheets and graphic organizers can be filled out as a classroom activity where hands-on learners can take the lead. Visual learners can benefit from the use of a classroom document camera by seeing small 3-D items, text, and demonstrations, in a much bigger way.
This grant covers the purchase of 25 SMART document cameras at Barrington High School.
