The Peer Leadership Ambassadors from Silver Bay Elementary hosted a digital technology event for Brandywine Assisted Living in Toms River. On Monday, May 20th some very enthusiastic fifth graders put together this event for the residents from Brandywine to see the new world of digital learning. The students made stations for demonstrations of robotics, augmented reality and Makey Makeys. Then the residents created light up cards and participated in green screen productions with the students. Banners and certificates created by the students were handed out at the end for the residents to bring back and share with their friends. The smiles were priceless.
Silver Bay has formed a partnership with Brandywine and in December the students went to their facility to assist with gingerbread house building and cookie decorating. This partnership has been an enlightening experience for all.
