The iTeachers had the honor of being guest speakers for the Washburn Education Association meeting yesterday afternoon. We spoke about the iTeachers mission and gave the WEA members a taste of educational technology. Dr. Pownell shared some fun iPad apps that are useful to Elementary Education. Eli Woody demonstrated the Smart Board and the cool new program Edmondo, which is being implemented into schools. Melissa Jeanneret displayed how eBooks, specifically the Kindle fire, can be useful during book discussions in class. This was just a quick informative meeting to give the WEA members an idea of what the iTeachers do. We would love to see some of their faces and many more at our next meeting where we will explore a piece of integrating technology and offer hands on learning.
