New Interactive Screens Implemented in Early Intervention Classrooms

The Colonial Intermediate Unit 20 Early Intervention program has implemented new, interactive screens designed for preschool learning in all of its specialized classrooms in the region. The TeachSmart boards were purchased with Cares Act Funds from the Department of Health and Human Services.
 
In light of continued mitigation procedures with the COVID-19 pandemic, the interactive screens allow students to engage and participate in their learning with less use of shared toys and materials. Daily use by the CIU 20 Early Intervention classroom staff includes: student transitions to different activities throughout the day, utilization of pictures and videos of real objects and environments to make connections, and teaching of cognitive and developmental skills at individual levels.
