RDMS Students Participate in the TICAL Conference
Mrs. Cegers-Coleman recently took a group of students to the TICAL (Technology Information Conference for Administrative Leadership) Conference in Little Rock. She described her experience, "Mrs. Avra asked me to take two fifth graders from my coding club and two seventh graders from the GT/Robotics club to present about things they have been doing. Between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. student presenters from pre-school through high school had displays set up to explain and demonstrate to conference attendees things they have been doing using technology at their schools. One of my coding club students used a tablet to control Sphero, a type of "robotic" ball, to make it jump a ramp, spin, change colors, etc. Another coding club student developed his own "apps" (on his own time!), so he was showing visitors about them. The seventh graders used chrome books to display Gizmos they had used in math and/or science class. The seventh graders also had a poster with pictures and information about a Lego Robot, an EV3, they had built in GT/Robotics club. They could not bring the actual robot since it had already been taken apart long before we knew about the conference, but they were able to talk about it. Each of the students was very professional and polite as they answered questions and explained their part of the presentation."
