TechFest a Success!
Alexandra Bockert, a junior at Grossmont Middle College High School, keynoted the event. In her dynamic presentation, Ms. Bockert shared her school experiences with technology and challenged the teachers in the theater to provide a wide array of technology-driven opportunities. She emphasized that students need to be prepared for a digital world and our schools are an essential part in that development. You can watch a recording of the keynote here: http://goo.gl/x7M8OV

Topics included Chromebooks, Google tools, gamification, online research, iPads, digital photography, flipping the classroom, and more.
