Rotary Clubs Partner on BrainWise eReader Project

Posted On: July 28, 2013

Cherry Creek Rotary in Denver, Colorado has an eReader project and a partnership with Barnes and Noble to obtain the devices at a discounted rate. In looking for partners to start a project with elementary schools in Denver, Peter Vandervanter—a Cherry Creek Rotary member—spoke with Dr. Barry. In talking with him, Dr. Barry learned that questions could be added to the stories that were placed on the eReaders. Realizing the eReader stories could be used to reinforce the BrainWise concepts; Dr. Barry worked with Judy Cardenas, a kindergarten teacher who has taught BrainWise to her students for many years. They chose 3 stories (The Gingerbread Baby, Pete the Cat, and Chrysanthemum) on the nooks to add questions on the 10 Wise Ways in order to demonstrate how BrainWise introduces critical thinking to storytelling.
The Denver Mile High Rotary Club partnered with the Cherry Creek club and will distribute 4 devices to the BrainWise teachers at University Park Elementary School.
