As some people get backinto the pool – some are getting back into the classroom. Today summer schoolfor teachers kicked off. Area teachers are attending the SEMI High Tech “U.”The two day training program is designed to help teachers integrate technologyinto their lessons. Organizers say the training they receive helps teachers feelconfident in the lessons they deliver.
LisaAnderson the Vice President of SEMI Foundation says, “I think it’s reallyimportant for the teachers to understand what technology is going to beintroduced into this region. And when that happens the teachers can go backinto the classroom and feel more confident and what they’re communicating tothe students.”
More than forty middle and high school teachers areattending the conference.
