On Tuesday, hundreds of students from across the state spent the day in Springfield for TECH Day 2019, where they showcased projects that illustrate the critical role technology plays in today’s educational environment. State Representative Avery Bourne had an opportunity to view displays and visit with students from Taylorville and Pana.
“Technology is a vital tool that helps prepare students to succeed in the digital world that awaits them when they enter the workforce. The projects on display at the Capitol on Tuesday demonstrated innovative uses of technology and exciting new ways for students to learn,” said Bourne. “It was clear from visiting with the students and teachers from Pana and Taylorville that technology expands the boundaries of classroom learning, while allowing students to refine collaboration and critical thinking skills. I was truly impressed with the quality of the work on display.”
