Tech Fest draws 500+ Pitt County teachers

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Teachers got a chance to check out the latest technology available for their classrooms at Pitt County's Tech Festival Friday.

More than 500 teachers spent the day at South Central High School learning about new tech like "Flip Your Classroom" and even implementing Twitter.

There was more than 100 sessions with many of them focusing on Google and its ever growing presence in education.

"The kids are using technology. It's no longer maybe they're doing it. They are absolutely using it so we got to figure out how, as teachers and educators, we can bring what they're doing outside of school into the classroom to help engage them and help them in the learning process," said Tim DeCresie, Pitt County Schools Coordinator of IT and Media Services.

Teachers also got a chance to ask students that exact question during the festival and many of them offered tips on how to integrate technology in the classroom.
