THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –Some advanced placement students in Thomasville will soon have advanced technology in their classrooms.

The Thomasville City School system received a competitive grant of nearly $65,000 to provide laptops, net books, iPod touches, pocket projectors, and software to the AP classrooms at the Scholars' Academy.

The new technology will offer a variety of practical applications including 3-D drawings, science simulations and podcasts that will be accessible to anyone in the world.

"They'll use these headphones with microphones to develop the podcasts that have to do with science or math in the AP classrooms.," explains Wes Davis, the Computer Network Supervisor for Thomasville City Schools. 

"They will store them on the computers, package them, they'll go on a server that will be at the school and then they'll be put on the website for public viewing."

The new equipment will be in classrooms by March 15th. But teachers will not use them in their regular curriculum until sometime next year, after they've completed training courses.
