Mayflower students go to Tech Camp

Even though summer break is over, student are still enjoying an opportunity to go to camp. Mayflower Mill Elementary School held a Tech Camp for students in third- through fifth-grade. Students attended sessions that touched on a variety of issues including Chromebook shortcuts, Google HyperDocs and digital citizenship. The goal is to teach students how to best use technology as a tool in the classroom.

In one session, teacher Christy Harshbarger talked about how to use email safely and what to do if you receive a chain email.

"Tech Camp Day was a great success," says Harshbarger. "Using technology safely is an important responsibility for students, and giving students the information they need to be good digital citizens is a valuable part of Tech Camp Day. By allowing students to choose from a variety of sessions and including digital citizenship sessions, we are able to quickly and efficiently give our students the skills and information needed to start using their Chromebooks as tools in the classroom."
