District 191 instructional technology to be highlighted at fair

Parents and community members are invited to attend a Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Tech Share Fair from 5 to 6:15 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25, in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. At the fair, teachers and their students will be demonstrating some of the many interesting ways technology is being integrated into their work.

Whether it’s using iPads to make public service announcement videos or using Minecraft to visualize the world of J.R.R. Tolkein’s “The Hobbit,” teachers and students are using technology to support and enhance classroom learning all the time. More than a dozen demonstrators representing elementary and secondary schools will be on hand. Chromebooks that will go to all students at Burnsville High School next year will be on display. There will be a live video stream from the science and tech fair taking place at Rahn Elementary School.

“This is an opportunity to see instructional technology in action, ask questions, and get more information about how instructional technology is expanding in our schools,” said Doug Johnson, the district’s director of technology.

The Tech Share Fair will take place in the upper level Senior Commons of Diamondhead Education Center, 200 W. Burnsville Pkwy.
