Elizabeth Forward High School’s library is unlike most you’ll see around the region. There, among the rows of books, you’ll find students working with audio-visual equipment to make video resumes, creating comic strips, or studying stages of infant development with interactive tools. The re-christened Media Center is a place where traditional learning can coexist with new technology, with students creating poetry iBooks or completing projects about the Vietnam War using the app, Aurasma. It’s a resource for the entire school, where teachers can bring their students for special projects

With a cafe, stage, a place for board games and video games, and an industry-level video studio where the daily morning announcements are filmed, the Media Center is not just a great place to learn, but a great place to hang out. It’s also just one of many learning innovations Elizabeth Forward School District has put into place, making the educational experience in their schools something extra special for students and teachers alike. Alongside the Math Cafe, Entertainment Technology Academy and The Dream Factory, the Elizabeth Forward Media Center is bringing learning alive in new and interesting ways.
