Students using Qwizdom

The Ferryway uses 3 systems to engage and assess learning in grades 3-8. Each student receives a remote during the lesson. Teachers reserve the SRS on a first-come, first served basis. Email Bob Simpson if you would like to use Qwizdom. Learn more about how we use the SRS to change our classrooms into 21st century learning environments.

The Ferryway is proud that we are the first and only K-8 school in Malden to have a portable laptop cart. The cart was part of a HP Technology For Teaching Leadership grant received in 2006-2007. We have (15) tc4200 tablet computers. Tablet computers have touch sensitive screens that use a stylus pen.
