Student technology workshop planned

Staff Reports • Updated Sep 28, 2016 at 2:00 PM

The classroom has changed a lot over the years, and while reading, writing and arithmetic are still taught, there are some different twists. 

Technology is a driving force in the nation, so learning must start early. 

Lebanon Special School District will hold a workshop Thursday called “Technology, Time Management and Study Skills.” Parents and students in fifth through eighth grades are encouraged to attend. Student handouts will include 

“Staying Safe Online – What Would You Do?” and “Learning Better Study Skills

– What Would You Do?”

Parents will also be given a variety of materials on the same topics.

Facilitators will include Walter J. Baird Middle School assistant principal Traci Sparkman and LSSD instructional technologist, Chris Tenbarge. 

Sparkman will talk to parents about how to know when their child has a skill deficit in math or reading, and walk parents through test procedures and how they can support their child at school. 

Tenbarge will talk about the importance of privacy and security when using Chromebooks and the variety of systems in place to monitor student use. He will also talk about the many activities that are enhanced through the use of technology.

The workshop, materials, childcare for children younger than fifth grade and snacks will be free. 

The workshop, sponsored by Lebanon Special School District Family Resource Center, will be Thursday from 6-8:30 p.m. in the Castle Heights Elementary School library.
