Summary: Provide Touchscreen Chromebooks to first grade class to enhance learning of letters and numbers while increasing dexterity.
The Payson School district has learned through the pandemic that the use of touchscreen chromebooks by beginning primary students enhances their ability to learn their letters and numbers at a quicker speed and directly impacts the student's ability to increase their limited dexterity in using a keyboard which improves the student's ability to learn no matter what the circumstances with limited resources in small communities like Payson. Last year Rotary helped the program get started at the kindergarten level and would like to continue the same program at the first grade level. According to School Superintendent these chromebooks are critical to developing these lifelong skills at an early age in a community with limited resources like Payson and for families that normally do not have access to such equipment for faster learning. This program will enhance the learning objectives of young students and will follow them through their entire coursework over the next twelve years in the Payson school district.
