BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) - Technology is constantly changing the way we work, consume and share information.
Now, thanks to the One Class At A Time grant program, it will also help improve the lives of some of Huntleigh Dodson’s very deserving students.
Dodson is a speech pathologist who works with kids like Camon, who has cerebral palsy and an upbeat personality.
The Linda Nolen Learning Center is Mrs. Dodson’s home base, but this year she also learned that she would be getting two new schools – Chelsea Middle and Chelsea High School.
That’s why Dodson was so excited when she found out she was the winner of this week’s One Class At A Time grant.
She says she’ll use the $1,000 award to buy an iPad since her students respond so well to interactive technology.
“They love it! It’s just new and it’s different and it can be personalized to them,” Dodson said.
She will also use the money to purchase a variety of apps needed to provide the best help to the students she helps – from kindergarten to high school.
“I need apps that will be appropriate for high schools who need social work and kindergarten children who are nonverbal,” Dodson explained.
CBS42’s co-sponsors for the One Class At A Time project are Pepsi and America’s First Financial.
