Illuminating Teaching and Learning

Mr. Melville's Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry class has been preparing for the online AP exam in May. He decided to bring a creative element to remote learning by building a light board to teach classes. The light board is constructed used a piece of plexiglass with a strip of LED lights underneath it. When lit, writing on the board with a neon marker produces a striking glow effect. 

This tool means that students get an experience similar to our teachers sharing content on a whiteboard, but they can also see their teacher's face. Bringing new and innovative teaching methods to remote learning helps students stay motivated and engaged in their learning.

    What a remarkable creation! Bravo, Mr. Melville! We very much appreciate your dedication to teaching and the brilliant idea to support online learning to get through this difficult time. Meanwhile, as a guardian, I very much enjoy the postings and getting to know teachers, staff, and even students more in the LCS community through these virtual environments.
