Language & Learning Center
The Language and Learning Center was the result of a $97,000 grant received from the Champlin Foundation in the fall of 2009. After only a short period of use in the lab, faculty members already began to see the opportunities that it provided them. Language teacher, Mrs. Joanne Welsh said, “Now we are able to record conversations and dialogues simultaneously, allowing us to progress at a more efficient pace.” Before this technology became available, language department classroom time was spent listening to students present oral exams. Now, however, the entire class can record their material simultaneously, providing the teacher with the opportunity to listen to the students in their down time and work on new material with students during their class.
The learning center is just one of the many steps that The Prout School has taken to provide its students with the latest tools and resources to enhance their educational experience. This award represents the school’s second Champlin Grant award. The first grant was awarded in the fall of 2005 for interactive whiteboards and related hardware for use in the science department.
