Goodview, MN (WXOW) – The latest Tools for Schools Award goes to a project that gets kids up and moving without sacrificing classroom time.
Students at Goodview Elementary School will soon be able to listen and learn through mobile audio devices called WalkKits.
Britta Browne earned the $1,000 award from SSE Music, Brenengen Auto, Dependable Solutions and River Bank to fund these devices for her students that come loaded with more than 160 audio programs over a variety of subjects like science and language arts.
Browne said being able to learn on the go helps boost the way kids of all levels retain information.
“If we were reading it on paper and you’re not the greatest reader, it might be hard to comprehend, but if you’re hearing it, your comprehension skills will be just as good as the highest reader in the class,” Browne said.
Each month, WXOW along with SSE Music, Brenengen Auto, Dependable Solutions and River Bank award one teacher or classroom with $1,000 for their projects. To apply click here.
