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.
