Lynch and Newton Public Schools partner for tech upgrade
Boston College President William P. Leahy, S.J., joined Newton Mayor Setti Warren ’93 to announce the University’s new, three-year, $300,000 commitment to helping upgrade computers and other educational technology in the Newton Public Schools.
Lynch School and Newton school officials gathered at the Newton Countryside School in late January to hear details of the new Boston College–Newton Technology Collaborative—the latest collaboration in a longtime, mutually beneficial partnership between Boston College and the schools, according to Maureen Kenny, LSOE interim dean.
“Our students gain experience through working with accomplished teachers, while the schools benefit from young and enthusiastic student teachers who are immersed in the study of teaching,” said Kenny. “This infusion of technology will give Newton students hands-on experiences while allowing our student teachers to train with the newest classroom tools available.”
Newton Countryside School second grade teacher Michelle Powers '95 demonstrated a writing lesson using technology that will be purchased.
