Jindal Foundation Makes Learning Interactive
- December 16, 2009
The AT&T Foundation and the Supriya Jindal Foundation for Louisiana’s Children have awarded four interactive white boards to Claiborne Lower Elementary School for their first-grade classrooms. The award package includes the following for each of the four classrooms: a laptop, a Promethean interactive whiteboard with speaker system, an interactive response system that allows students to participate actively in the lesson, all installation and instructor training for all teachers. Ms. Jindal, along with representatives from WalMart (a Jindal Foundation contributor), visited the school December 14 to present the award and conduct a short lesson using a whiteboard. All 60 first-grade students attended and participated in a “Jeopardy”-like interactive learning game.
