Three Rivers Educational Technology Conference

IHS teachers Brian Carson, Jenifer McMurray, Michele Murray, and Tracey O'Toole participated in a panel discussion on November 14 at the Three Rivers Educational Technology Conference (TRETC), a regional conference attended by more than 400 participants this year.  The panel discussion focused on this year's conference theme, Connecting to a Digital World, and was moderated by IHS Technology Facilitator Linda Martin. Panelists discussed their use of SMART Technologies, Moodle, teacher websites, Bring Your Own Technology, and challenges faced while implementing technology in the classroom. The group was asked to present by SMART Solution Technologies, one of the conference's two major sponsors this year.  According to their website, "TRETC is the premier K-16 educational technology conference in Western Pennsylvania."  This was the fifteenth year for the conference to be held. Below are: Mr. Brian Carson, Mrs. Tracey O'Toole, Mrs. Linda Martin, Mrs. Michele Murray, and Mrs. Jenifer McMurray.  The video below was also part of the panel discussion to relate IHS student reactions to technology in our school.  Thanks to the students for participating!
