CCSD uses IBM technology to inspire young learners

  • Thursday, November 21, 2013

Due to a generous gift from IBM, 10 Charleston County School District Head Start classrooms received Young Explorer computer learning centers. These are computers housed in brightly colored, kid-friendly Little Tikes furniture and equipped with award-winning educational software to help children learn and explore concepts in math, science and language. IBM is also providing funding installation and training to ensure maximum use of the learning centers.

The computer centers also help children learn important socialization skills such as working together and sharing. Exploration and socialization skills are important to prepare children for future success in school, help level the playing field and ensure all children have access to educational tools.

The 10 CCSD Head Start programs that received this technology include St. James-Santee.

IBM’s Young Explorer has been shown to substantially improve teaching and learning and leads to significant positive outcomes for children and teachers in disadvantaged communities. Young Explorers are the centerpiece of IBM’s KidSmart Early Learning grant program which along with Reading Companion, IBM developed to help reduce the digital divide, especially in urban areas.
