Technology updates include netbooks, electronic keyboards


Students and staff at JFK are eagerly anticipating the use of additional technology at JFK.

Over 80 netbook computers will be added to the expanded wireless network at JFK this year. This infusion of machines will take the student-to-laptop or netbook computer ratio to four-to-one at JFK.

In addition to computers, technology is being infused into music and band at JFK. Students in grades two to eight are using new electronic keyboards to learn to play the piano and develop their knowledge of music theory. In band, students can sign up for SmartMusic and play along with a whole band as they practice their lessons and band music. Students also submit their lessons to the JFK band teacher, Kim Hatcher, and receive feedback from her via the Internet.
