Antigua - Teaching the Teachers; Putting Technology in Schools
Teacher Cisco Training Program Newport High School / Belevue School district
Introduced by: John Martinka
In February four BBRC members and six other adults accompanied 14 Bellevue School District students to Antigua. Today’s BBRC program will show and discuss what we did: provide computers and install Wi-Fi networks; cover our training program to teach the teachers how to use technology to effectively reach their students; and discuss our eighth sewing center. We will also share what this means to our local students and the citizens of Antigua. The traveling Rotarians will be joined by Jeff Mason and a couple of his students. If the Antigua Internet connectivity allows for it, you will also hear from one or two Antigua Rotarians.
