First, it was computers. Then came e-readers. Now, more high-tech gadgets are making their way into your child’s classroom. This year, the Ocean Springs School District went wireless, and every school has access to all sorts of mobile technology. The devices are changing the way students learn. The times have certainly changed at Pecan Park Elementary School. The second graders in one class are learning how to tell time by using a Mimio Board. Lessons from a computer are projected onto a background, turning an ordinary dry erase board into an interactive one. “It is like playing a video game,” the teacher told the students. Across the hall, the class is using Neo Boards. “They love them. They enjoy it. It’s like their own personal computer,” said second grade teacher Ashley French.
