School Board to consider purchase of iPads

Could iPad minis soon make an appearance en masse in Henrico County’s public school system?

Henrico County’s Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education and Instructional Support Services Bondy Shay Gibson advocated for the increased use of iPads in kindergarten, first- and second-grade classrooms at an April 10 School Board work session.

“The iPad is very developmentally accessible,” Gibson said, commenting on the lack of training required to use the device. “You just have to know how to push a button and move your finger.” > Read more.

3 students featured in ‘Plant It!’ video

Three students from Henrico County Public Schools are featured in a video produced this spring for Dominion’s Project Plant It! program.

Keagan’s earns its good ‘pub’

When you enter Keagan’s Richmond, with its long bar and corner stage, it feels immediately like a typical Irish pub or tavern with its noise from merry patrons sitting along the well-equipped long bar eating a boxty or Shepherd’s pie and sipping their Guinness on tap or Irish Whiskey.

But that is about as far the Irish character goes. The music, whether from the “can,” a Virginia rock band, or the DJ in the evening, is not necessarily Irish. The same is true of the food menu, which offers (in addition to typically Irish specialties) typical American favorites, such as burgers, sandwiches, and chicken drums (the boneless variety) with spicy and not so spicy sauces and sides. > Read more.
