Big image

This month's Techie Teacher Award goes to Ashley Moore, 4th grade teacher at Klein Road Elementary. Her class has been working on Digital Science Notebooking. Her students are able to complete lab activities using their iPads with iTunes U and Notability. This enables students to add photos and videos of experiments to their electronic lab write-ups. Now that's Gettin' Techie With It!
