EDINBURG – Third-grade students at Eisenhower Elementary School recently practiced their math skills using an interactive panel, which is one of the latest technology tools available to students and teachers in the classroom.

The Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District connected one Clear Touch Interactive Panel at each of its 37 elementary and middle schools at the start of this school year.

“The students have become very quick learners with the panels,” said Veronica Cortez, a teacher at Eisenhower Elementary School. “We started with one mathematical program and then added a new one within a couple of days.”

The LED panels feature a multi-touch screen, allowing several students to be able to touch it simultaneously and use different educational programs at the same time.

Cortez said that her students are having a great time using the new display panels, which is making learning fun.

Eisenhower Principal Sylvia Faz said that the interactive panels have been met with so much enthusiasm by both teachers and students that she hopes in the near future to see at least one panel for each grade level in her school.
