Senators welcome students to TECH Day 2018 (VIDEO)

tech harmonStudents and teachers from dozens of Illinois schools came to the Capitol today to show lawmakers how they are using technology in their schools as part of the TECH 2018 event.

Since 1990, students and teachers have set up displays to show off their classroom projects and demonstrate how technology is the enabling tool of the modern learning environment. The schools facilitate access to tools and resources that promote accountability, communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. Students then plan and develop what they will present and demonstrate at TECH day.


Featuring projects from elementary through high school classes, the annual event is planned by the Illinois Computing Educators organization.
