(October 12, 2017 – Cayuga, NY) – On Tuesday evening, the Union Springs Central School District’s Board of Education members received fun and engaging math lessons from third and fourth grade students at Cayuga Elementary School.

Nine students attended the latest Board of Education meeting to demonstrate different math applications they use on their iPads and Chromebooks while in school. These applications such as Big Brainz help to increase students’ math fact fluency and support their overall math skills.

Students began the meeting showing board members how to use the applications, and then they turned their devices over to each board member to try out the applications and test their skills.

 “Our students really enjoy practicing math concepts with these applications,” says Sheila LaDouce, Principal of Special Programs.

“They can practice on their iPad or Chromebook while in school or on their personal devices at home.”

All students in the Union Springs Central School District now have personal digital learning devices to use in the classroom to enhance their classroom instruction.

“By leveraging the programs and instructional opportunities the iPad and Chromebooks allow for, students will be better equipped to engage the challenges and rigor of the 21st Century economy,” says Jarett Powers, Superintendent.

“We are eager to bring the wonders of technology into our classrooms to support our students’ learning and achievement.”
