Digital world of possibilities showcased at Tech Camp

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - More than 100 Poplar Bluff Middle School and Junior High staff members participated in the second annual Tech Camp on Collaboration Day on Friday, Jan.15, featuring workshops hosted by R-I faculty as well as education leaders from throughout the state.

The 45 break-out sessions at PBJHS centered on resources and strategies for digital classrooms.

The professional development event is the brainchild of the R-I instructional technology team, which got its idea in 2014 after attending an International Society for Technology in Education conference.

To complement this year's theme, "Play with Purpose" organizers set up an interactive "playground" in the hallway featuring emerging technologies including a green screen, Google Cardboard, Makey Makey and Sphero kits, which will be made available for classrooms to check out to teach students coding.
