Greene County Schools are at the forefront in delivering technology to the classroom. As school districts across Georgia and the U.S. explore ways to engage students in the Digital Age, Greene County Schools are already using the latest technology as tools in teaching and learning.
Shuffle My Teacher Home* is a program at Greensboro Elementary School that is presently targeting English Limited Learner in the third grade to assist them in their own language acquisition. The program is meant to extend the learning day with providing some additional fun activities using technology. The iPods not only help the students but also their parents to acquire a better understanding of the language. Helping the parents helps the student with reading assignments and homework.
The educational pouches include an iShuffle from Apple, two sets of ear phones, an interactive journal, and learning activities with focus on comprehension, vocabulary, literature and mathematics standards are provided to students. Guided and tailored instructions from the audio books, math songs, and Readers Theater loaded on the iShuffle are created locally by their teacher to pre-teach and expose the students many different skills that lead to their success in learning key skills in literacy and math.
