The library has 10 Dash robots. Students can learn basic coding and logic by using these. Teachers can also use them to practice the problem-solving model. Math teachers can use them in activities that require measuring lines and angles.
Each robot comes with a launcher and a gripper attachment. This is great fun, but it also has a great math/science application if the launches are graphed in a scatter plot.
METAQUEST 2 HEADSET
Virtual reality allows you to immerse yourself in an alternate world. It is a chance for new learning experiences. Learning through games can lead to better understanding of concepts.
The headset is pre-loaded with apps/games rated for everyone. You may request a game be added. Check out this informational flyer. Email Ms. Corcoran with any questions or requests.
The library subscribes to Swank K-12 streaming. Teachers can search the pre-approved titles or request approval of a title from Swank's database. Students can only view the movies if a teacher shares a direct link with them.
Use this service to supplement a lesson. Watching videos via Swank also ensures that you are showing movies legally, even if they are a reward.
