Closing the Digital Divide One Family At A Time
Students and their families at IS 126Q , are getting a digital lesson thanks to Councilman Costa Constantinides and the PowerMyLearning program. Saturday mornings have now been filled with families coming together to learn how to turn on a computer, how to surf the web, internet safety, and how critical these skills are to succeeding in the 21st century. Parents are guided towards websites that have provide a wealth of information to support their student and the rest of their family succeed inside and outside of the classroom. One of the websites that helps parents support their students learning is Pupil Path, where parents can log on and track their students individual program in real time. Long-time Zone 126 parent Olga Silva said “the program is a plus, just being something that the family learned and shared together.” Councilman Constantinides came out to speak with parents about the importance of the program, and how critical it is in this day and age. All families who attended the workshop were provided a free desktop computer to take home and continue their individual learning, closing the digital divide one family at a time.
