New computer lab in Fair Haven neighborhood hopes to teach residents digital literacy


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A new computer lab has opened in New Haven’s Fair Haven neighborhood Tuesday morning.

City officials celebrated the lab opening at The Farnam Community, which allows residents in the area to use their services.

Farnam Community partnered up with Concepts for Adaptive Learning (CfAL) to establish the lab.

Jennifer Ricker, the Executive Director of CfAL said, “What we’re hoping to do is really build the skills that we know families need to succeed in school, and then career.”

The computers and tablets will also be available to pre-school and elementary school students in CfAL’s Digital Literacy Program. Those devices will have around 35,000 books and videos in both English and Spanish for the students to use.
