Jean M. Manfra School
SMART Board

The SMART Board® utilizes an interactive display plus specialized software to create a better in-class educational method versus the traditional whiteboard. Our responsive digital whiteboards accept touch input from a finger, pen, or other solid object allowing the student to interact directly with material displayed from the teacher's computer. Students are able to draw shapes, write text, or drag and drop images in real-time as an active participant in the lesson.


Jean M. Manfra School
Student Computer Lab

Our staff supervised computer lab is available for guided student use wherein the focus is on building computer interaction confidence and using specialized instructional software. Software solutions include word processing and prediction software, grammar and spell checkers, dictation software, and on-screen keyboards. We provide adaptive computer experiences while also providing a resource center for our educators to assist in assessing the computing needs of JMMS students.

iPads for Communication

At JMMS we utilize the iPad® as an assistive communication tool during teaching and therapy to support our learners. We are mindful that each individual has a different level of experience and abilities in his or her use of these devices. Using a variety of apps we facilitate learning by doing as students are able to see, hear, play, and say while practicing skills or sharing needs.
