Technology-Enriched Library and Computer Lab
In the main instructional and reading area of the Kenmore Library, an audio enhancement system allows clear audio transmission throughout the instructional space, while the instructor speaks in a normal voice.
The Library includes a computer lab equipped with 18 work stations, in two tiers. The configuration enhances instruction as teachers can have students use the counter/desktops for note-taking and then can supervise student work online. The Lab features a ceiling mounted presentation projector that is used in conjunction with the permanently-mounted SmartBoard, an interactive whiteboard that facilitates instruction and learning.
Every other Friday throughout the school year we broadcast the Principal’s Forum, a program that focuses on school issues: safety, upcoming special events, recognition of students and staff achievements, and guests representing school or community organizations. On alternating Fridays, the Kenmore Cougar News Team broadcasts a weekly student-produced news program. Both programs originate in our state-of-the-art TV Studio and Production/Control Room, adjacent to the Media Center.
Other Available Technology
A variety of equipment is available to support school-related activities (classroom projects, field trips, and major dance, music and drama productions). These include: DVD players, boomboxes, digital cameras and camcorders, LCD projectors, and speaker systems.
