Kent Technology Expo
District students use technology to learn new skills to prepare for
their futures every day. Our classrooms are places where students are
able to try new ways to learn important concepts and, more importantly,
college and career skills. Students in the One-to-One Laptop Program
have access to 21st Century learning anytime, from anywhere.
School District’s annual Technology Expo showcases how students gain
college and career skills through classroom projects using technology
tools. At the event, students and teachers will demonstrate technology
in use, speak about what they have learned, and ask attendees to get
involved. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience Kent School
District technology integration by solving a problem, completing a task,
or building a device with student presenters.
This event also
highlights local businesses and organizations that support the use of
technology in education. These business sponsors and exhibitors help
demonstrate the connection between classrooms and careers.
