La Mesa Dale teachers were welcomed back to school with some new technological devices to assist their lesson delivery. EIA (Economic Impact Aide) funds, designated specifically for technology to increase student engagement, were used to purchase these assistive tools. All teachers received microphone systems. The microphones allow teachers to speak more naturally without straining to project their voices. It also enables the students in the back of the room to have clearer access to their teachers' and classmates' voices. Research has shown students' test scores improved as a result of being able to hear more clearly in class. Teachers also received document cameras to project worksheets, student work, or books. Even small items can be magnified in a science or history lesson for all students to see. Additionally, teachers in 4th, 5th and 6th grade received eBeams, a device that lets their whiteboards become interactive. The teacher can project instructional material on the whiteboard, then the eBeam allows the teacher or students to manipulate pictures or words making the lessons more engaging for the students.
