Favorite Tech Moment: I would say that I can think of several. Two of my favorites are every time that I work with students on a high school drama production and we use our tech to program and run the lights and sound cues and we can pull off an incredible show. The second is watching and listening to the excitement from our students as they Shoutcast some of our esports matches or broadcast other events from our district with our livestream cart on their own.
Favorite Quote (or tip for other educators): Win with humility, lose with grace, and do both with dignity.
Student Tech Fairs
Student tech fairs have been a staple for years as one of many ways that ITEC has done to support technology use in the classroom.
Due to COVID, this opportunity was put on hold, but . . .
ITEC has been working behind the scenes to use this as an opportunity to revisit and improve the Student Tech Fair experience for students and sponsors.
Be on the lookout next week for a special announcement!
