Infusing Technology Statewide Conference for Teachers Updates Classrooms

Posted: Updated:

Technology is always changing and it is important for teachers to be able to stay up to date on it for their students learning.

The West Virginia Center for Professional Development hosted its second Infusing Technology Conference in the state this week.

Teachers can make their education a more personal experience by being able to choose from more than 30 courses.

“The possibilities with technologies in the classroom are almost endless with the number of apps and resources available for free to teachers. So, it’s important for us to let them know where they can find these resources. It’s still about working smarter, instead of working harder. If we can just give them these tips of where to go, and what to do, that makes it easier for them to go into classrooms and let them spend individualized time with their students,” said Lorrie Smith, WV Center for Professional Development.

The teachers volunteer to attend the conference, teach grades pre-K through 12, and come from all over the state.
