Technology Celebration K-5 (VP)
Recently I visited one of our feeder elementary schools, Davis Elementary, who was just named a Georgia School of Excellence. I was delighted to have the opportunity to be on their campus as this exciting honor was announced to their students, staff, and community. While on the campus, I was incredibly impressed with the level of technology integration in their curriculum--even in the kindergarten classes!
I asked Davis' principal, Mrs. Brink, if I could return with a middle school film crew to create a podcast of the amazing work these teachers and children are doing as they prepare for Mabry Middle School. This podcast is the product of that visit. Special thanks to Rebecca, Grant, and Chandler, the three eighth grade Mabry students who filmed and edited this project.
