App Speed Share Event

My after school technology leadership team (SWAT TEAM…Students Working to Advance Technology) held our first App Speed Share event two nights ago. What a great success it was! We had 50 teachers and principals from various schools in the district who attended the event. Each student became a “content expert” on the app that they were to teach others. The students learned so much more than how to use these apps. They learned public speaking skills, writing, presentation skills, and even how to purposefully speak to reporters who were there to conduct interviews. We had no idea that all three major local network stations would cover this event, but they were all there and all highlighted the great work these kids are doing to advance technology. It was a great experience for these kids; one I think they will not forget. Here are some clips from the news coverage we received as a result of putting together this event.
