|'A whole new dynamic:' Berwyn school gaining recognition for technology|
|Posted by: Susan Einhorn|
|Julie Galluzzi's first-grade class at Hiawatha Elementary School doesn't look traditional.
One child lays halfway under a table playing with blocks. A little girl reads into her computer's webcam, making sure she shows the camera the book’s illustrations. Scattered clusters of students chat while pointing at books or computer screens.
Everybody is talking, and nobody is paying attention to the teacher.
Galluzzi flutters back and forth between 28 students, each one learning through a different medium at his or her own pace — and with a computer.
Although the scene is unorthodox, administrators say it's one of the best things that's ever happened in the district.
Galluzzi's classroom is part of South Berwyn School District 100's one-to-one technology initiative, which aims to have a computer in the hands of every student by the time school opens next year.
