A group of teachers and students from Mineola Middle School shared about their experience using LightSail at a recent school board meeting, reports The Island Now.
“It amazes me how articulate the children are and how knowledgeable they are about what they are doing in school and their own learning,” Mineola school Superintendent Michael Nagler said. “It’s very impressive that they understand how they learn and what they learn.”
Board of Education President Christine Napolitano, who said people often associate iPads in the classroom with mindless activity, was similarly inspired by the presentation.
“This is far, far from mindless work,” she said. “The way the children articulated what they are doing ran rings around me.”
