Quest students show off tech tools at Board of Education meeting

By on February 4, 2019

A group of students from Quest Elementary School in Hilton attended the January 22 Board of Education meeting so they could show Board members and the other adults in attendance technology tools they are using in their classrooms and at home. About 20 students demonstrated Google Sites, SeeSaw and Flipgrid as ways to create portfolios, making it easier for them to set goals and reflect on their work. They even created a special FlipGrid that allowed attendees to connect with their classes. The students also demonstrated Padlet and Storyboard – tools that make their learning more visible and help teachers make planners more fun.

“These tools are allowing our students to connect, create, collaborate and personalize learning in ways they could not prior to having this technology,” said Jason Cring, Instructional Technology Support specialist. “It’s allowing our teachers to make learning visible and go deep into the content.”
