Technology is all around us — at work, at home, even in the car. To show the community the sort of impact technology makes in the classroom, Chisum Independent School District held a Technology Showcase on Thursday.
Or, as the teachers liked to call it, “Technopalooza.”
“They’re taxpayers. They’re paying for this. Sometimes, you like to see where your money’s going,” Casey Rogers, the elementary school’s technology coordinator said.
“As parents, they should be aware of what opportunities we’re giving their children. Our vision is to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s world. The world is digital. What were w doing to prepare the children for that?”
Teachers and students at Chisum Elementary School held presentations in various classrooms to show off their techno-savvy. Topics included:
The middle and high school presentations included multimedia classes, mobile labs, calculator and smart board interaction and more.
“It’s important to the district that we have the most current version so the kids are ready for what they will see when they leave here,” Rogers said.
