El Paso - Learning online, reducing paper and making learning interactive; Those are the goals of local teachers who got together Saturday to learn about technology.

They want to incorporate computers, iPads, and Google Apps in their classrooms. That's why they held an "Ed-Camp" at the E.P.I.S.D. Center for Career and Technology Education.

"technology, you have to be at the forefront with that because it changes so rapidly and your students come in knowing more than you do practically as a teacher. So, just the fact that you have to be open minded, not be afraid to use technology, and let some of your students guide some of the learning," Instructional Technology Specialist Kathrin Salazar said.

Similar "Ed-Camps" that teach teachers about technology are going on across the United States. It's a way for teachers to expand their horizons with technology in the classroom.

Okay so the school districts are saying and admitting they are going to provide free Ipads or Android Tablets to the illegal immigrant children that make up of 20% of the school districts in the future?

So they get free food and even free school supplies and soon to be free Ipad/Tablet?

All on the american tax dollars, must be nice to have these american benefits for free and don't even have to pay for it.

No wonder why our schools have no fundings.
