EJ Autism Grant Brings MimioTeach to RCK

The EJ Autism Foundation recently provided teacher Jennifer Beebe with a MimioTeach interactive whiteboard system for use in her and Dennis Clancy’s third-grade classroom at Ruth C. Kinney Elementary School.

This donation was one of six grants from EJ Autism to district teachers, part of the organization’s continuing efforts to support East Islip’s schools and special needs programs across Long Island that work with children diagnosed with autism.

The MimioTeach turns any dry erase board into an interactive whiteboard. With the use of this system, Beebe and Clancy’s lessons have been enhanced by greater interactivity. “It keeps students focused and interested,” said Beebe. “They are excited to use and learn about the new technology.”

Since its installation, students have used the MimioTeach for a wide variety of content-related activities. “With MimioTeach, we can model and annotate lessons so that all students can see and have an equal opportunity to participate,” explained Beebe. “Our students also love to work collaboratively by practicing the skills they have already learned by playing interactive games.”
