Preschoolers at Kids Can Community Center are using latest technology to learn to write.
This month, every child in the Pre-K classroom will have their own iPad Mini as a new learning tool.
Using the Wet-Dry-Try app, a nationally recognized program under the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, children practice their letters and numbers while simultaneously improving their hand-eye coordination.
This month, Kids Can introduced the iPad Mini’s as part of their “iTime” project, offering each child access to independent technology learning during the day.
The purpose is too allow them to not only work at their own pace on their Wet-Dry-Try program, but also take advantage of many great educational apps.
The new technology tools and “iTime” program were launched through support from the Lincoln Financial Foundation. The foundation provides grants in the areas of arts, education, human services, and economic/workforce development.
