Two Clearwater-Orchard teachers are in Omaha this week sharing their experiences during a presentation at the state's largest educational technology conference.
Special education teacher Bonnie Mitchell and technology coordinator Kortney Sayers spent Thursday afternoon presenting at the Nebraska Educational Technology Association conference on a Google classroom.
Mitchell, who is in her eighth year at Clearwater-Orchard, said she loves trying new things with technology with my students and has "been really focusing on transition and independence with the high schoolers using Google and having some great successes."
Sayers is in her 15th year of teaching technology and business and is also a certified Google instructor. Sayers said she enjoys "getting to learn something new every single day."
The session Thursday focused on getting started with Google Classroom. The Cyclone faculty told other teachers how a Google Classroom can save them time and headaches, from turning in homework to organizing information. The session focused on how documentation can also be added to Google Classroom from a special education teacher.
Molly Aschoff, a distance learning coordinator and media specialist at ESU 8 in Neligh, also presented a session on Thursday. Her session was about expand what teachers are doing in their library or classroom through video conferencing. She focused on connecting to authors, experts, or theme based specialists and brining a zoo, farm, or forensic expert into the classroom without the milage.
The NETA conferences are held in Omaha each fall and spring.
