Student Magic!

It was a historic week for the Tech Sherpas. Thanks to EdTechTeam, four students from central Maine joined me for educational opportunities across Alberta, Canada. The students presented to over 1,000 educators from around Edmonton. 

(and won the Demo Slam :)

The week was capped off with an amazing Student Summit at Black Gold Regional School District in LeDuc. 150 students coded, animated, modded, taught, learned and so much more. The event culminated with one group of little wizards creating a district wide student tech team website. Collaboratively, students researched domain names, designed logos, and built a custom website for their school board with links, resources, and lots of selfies! 


The whole thing can be found at www.studentmagic.org



I was amazed at how quickly that one idea, forty-five minutes and thirty amazing students could take the building blocks of a transformational project that will help teachers, give back to the community and ultimately provide a platform for all the students to learn.

So, what are you waiting for - go get started!!
