With computers all over school campuses these days, teachers are finding ways to help students get the most out of the technology.
Fourth-grade teacher Mary Hardy's effort to do just that received a boost Monday when she was awarded a chunk of the money being donated by the Assistance League of Huntington Beach Links to Learning program.
The group gave $19,917 to 53 teachers in the Huntington Beach City School District.
Hardy will use some of the money she was given to create a news broadcast program at Huntington Seacliff Elementary School this year.
"These kids are so technologically savvy, they know way more than I do," she said. "Last year, I helped a girl working on an iMovie. I was learning it and I was slow as molasses doing it. She came in the next day telling me that I could do this and this. She knew how to do it like that."
