Tech Night supports 21st Century learners

Parents can learn how to better support their 21st century learners at home and at school by attending Community Technology Night in the Oak Harbor Middle School Library from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18.

Technology now provides the modern day tools for learning, both at home and at school. Community Technology Night is designed to help parents keep up. The keynote presentation will be “Developing Digital Citizens: Learning, the Internet, Your Child & You.”

The night will include interactive presentations concerning: Learning in the 21st century classroom; the instructional role of the internet; the impact of technology integration; educating students on the educational use of Web 2.0 resources; best practices and roles of internet safety; and envisioning a connected community.

Hands-on, break-out sessions will showcase innovative learning using SmartBoards, blogs and student-centered instruction, as well as using ThinkCentral at home to extend learning for elementary students.

The sessions will run simultaneously for 30 minutes and will be an open forum in which participants can come in and see the use of the technology underway by teachers and students in the Oak Harbor School District.
