Our program highly recommends having access to a laptop or tablet for use during pre-service training. The reason being that you will have time during the day at your Teaching Academy to work on lesson plans. Additionally, a large volume of material is shared electronically and you might need access to it during your skill-building sessions.
Unfortunately, at this time, NYCTF is unable to provide laptops for Fellows over the summer. While it is certainly possible to navigate pre-service training without a computer, it is highly recommended that each Fellow has regular access to a laptop or tablet.
