Gainesville schools need better Wi-Fi, more tablets, tech director says
Fair Street School students Joshua Luis, 11, left, and Steven Nunez, 12, work Wednesday on Kuno tablets during the guided reading class. The devices allow students to more easily access work and have tests graded faster. Students who need extra help can work with applications that help them understand the subject matter.
Gainesville City Schools are in need of upgraded technology, but getting everything they want may be too costly. Director of Technology Keith Palmer originally appeared before the board in November to present an update on Fair Street School’s technology. The elementary school opened for students in October, and has been held up as the technological model for other schools in the city system.
