Event Details

Today in Lab we have Michael Medcalf and his business partner Tyler Sims joining us to share a project he is launching soon called TechPush. Michael is looking for feedback on the program, specifically whether he is targeting the right audience and how to get teachers on board.

TechPush is a proactive attempt to educate teachers on how to incorporate technology into their everyday lesson plans. With technology such as smart phones, tablets and net books becoming more prevalent in
everyday life, Powered Innovations has uncovered a need to help educators reach their students in a dynamic way. Technology in the classroom increases educational enthusiasm and will aid teachers in keeping students engaged.

Schools that participate in TechPush will receive instruction and recommendations on best practices, technological forecasts, and step by step instruction on the technologies that are available. Teachers will also have the opportunity to ask questions and recommend topics for future TechPush classes that they deem important to their success.
