Pilot School: A New Arrival School

 

A New Arrival School (ANA), sponsored by Kozefo, received 30 Chromebooks, a projector, and wireless internet in June 2015.  Since then the teachers have been participating in professional development a few times each year to learn digital literacy skills themselves so that they can help their students do the same.  

 

Starting in February, teachers began participating in monthly online sessions to build their skills as well as increase their knowledge of the resources available to them.
