2nd Graders Present Tech project in Springfield Capitol
TECH 2018 TECHNOLOGY DEMONSTRATION AT THE
ILLINOIS STATE CAPITOL on MAY 10, 2018
The annual TECH 2018 Students for the Informational Age event was held on Tuesday, May 10, 2018 at the Illinois State Capitol Building in Springfield. More than 100 schools throughout Illinois were represented.
Our students demonstrated electronic books chronicling the lives of various seniors in the community. The books were created in collaboration with the Grandbrier Senior Assisted Living Facility residents in Prospect Heights. The demonstrations were a means to share the importance of increased funding for technology in the everyday classroom with state legislators. The creative use of technology enhances and accelerates student achievement in Illinois schools. A strong foundation in informational-age technology is a requirement for student success in academic advancement and career placement.
