Newman Grove staff attends conference

Newman Grove Public Schools teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators attended the spring conference for the Nebraska Educational Technology Association (NETA) in Omaha.
For two days, staff members were engaged in sessions to grow professionally in the areas of leadership and technology.
“The NETA conference gives attendees the opportunity to attend keynote speakers, choose breakout sessions, view playground sessions where teachers give classroom examples, and visit vendors to discuss new products,” Erin Forre, reading specialist/curriculum director, said. “During a playground session, Cassidy Wallin, Meghan Flood, Kristin Benson, and Emily Niewohner presented on Seesaw. Seesaw is a student-driven digital portfolio that empowers students to independently document what they are learning at school. Seesaw is an easy way for teachers to communicate with families.”
Forre said Coby Amen, Danielle Amen, Karla Patzel, and Jared Weimer gave a presentation on Becoming a Future Ready District Using the 4Cs: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
“It was exciting to see our staff learn new ways to incorporate technology and collaborate together about ways we can bring this information back to our students,” Forre said.
