Get a glimpse into a Ponca City classroom

Ponca City Now - March 24, 2014 1:33 pm

The Ponca City School Board is hosting a technology expo.

Barbara Cusick with the School Board said it’s like a science fair, but technology instead.

She said the event is for the community.

“ We want to show the community what their money supports, as far as technology bonds are concerned and our students and teachers and how they’re using technology in the classroom,” Cusick said.

Cusick said the technology initiative started four years ago with a grant the district recieved.

Ponca City passed a technology bond that refreshes every four year.

Cusick said they are always expanding technology in schools and this is a way to give a glimpse into a normal school day.

“This is the third year we have conducted the technology expo and so each school has a representative or teacher and group of students that represent the site, and their demonstrating exactly how they use the technology," Cusick said. "We’ll have promethean boards, we will have clickers, again we’ll have student projects, some may use iPads.”

The expo is tonight from 5 to 7 at the High School Commons.

Kindergarten through high school classes will be represented.

They will also serve hotdogs.
