Technology in the Middle School Classroom
On March 13, parents from the Waukee Community School District engaged in a Community Education Learning Highlight: Technology in the Middle School Classroom. Developing an understanding of how instructional technologies are being used to enhance curriculum, was the focus of the session. Administrators, teachers, and students from the middle schools demonstrated how the tools of today are preparing students for the 21st century workplace. Parents learned about collaboration, communication, and presentation tools, along with library services that support student learning. Google Docs, the Flipped Classroom, iPad apps, databases for research, Destiny Quest, and others were shared so that parents could connect with their students regarding classroom learning.
