TECHS class earns cutting-edge iPad
Video project recognized.
Work done by five advanced computer students at Brady High School has earned the district its own Apple iPad.
Dalton Riedel, Stephanie Finnell, Kristin Boden, Ashley Frederickson and Brodie Sullivan-Bock were awarded the iPad by Educational Service Unit 10 after creating online video tutorials for school staff and students.
Members of the ESU 10 Technology Education Challenges in High Schools (TECHS) team recognized the Brady project as best out of projects from 26 schools in Nebraska.
The awards were announced during an end-of-the-year video conference in April.
ESU10 TECHS director John Stritt said the Brady Project was chosen based on audio quality, topics found valuable within an educational setting, participation of all class members and the report summarizing the intentions of the project.
The online tutorials are on the TECHS Web page which is linked to the school Web site at www.bradyschools.com.
“We are all really excited to get the opportunity to use this cutting-edge technology,” said Brady TECHS teacher Robbi McKenney. “The students have watched videos of people standing in lines for this product. We have put several educational applications on it and are looking for more. The eBook, Internet and video capabilities have a lot of possibilities in the educational setting.”
