Technology for Learning

Getting a 10 year old to focus on learning for thirty minutes can be hard. By utilizing the same technology our educators are able to present lessons in a new way that students find engaging.

Using iPad tablets allows for a deeper understanding and connections between the lesson being taught and the items in the museum. For example, in addition to seeing Jackie Robinson’s jersey, students can see video of how fast he was, hear interviews about the experiences he faced on and off the field, and read his letters to fans and presidents…all with the swipe of a finger.

We currently have 5 iPads but need a total of 15 to have one for each student in a typical school group visiting the Museum.

Cost including a protective case: $300 per unit
