Missoula educators learn tech lessons

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Missoula public schools are one step closer to joining the tech savvy world.

Around 75 teachers, administrators and support staff from several local schools took part in the Google Cadre at Sentinel High School on Saturday.

Taught by the Montana based company Beyond the Chalk, educators learned about technology integration in the classroom with the help of Google tools. This was the second session of the four day program. Participating schools will each receive 30 Chrome Books for the 2015-2016 school year, which teachers say is a huge help in student learning.

"I think it's really important to bring into the classroom. It teaches students 21st century skills, skills their going to need when they step out of the classroom, walks into the real world. Being able to collaborate, being able to find things on the internet and even being able to conduct themselves in a safe manner in the digital world," explained Dean Phillips, co-founder of Beyond the Chalk.

Beyond the Chalk will finish its program with a Google Apps Festival open to the public on May 2a2 atentinel High School.
