From Wikispaces to Web 2.0: KS conference focuses on integrating technology into the classroom

Technology is transforming education. Teachers have access to more high-tech tools, mediums and methods than ever before – and children are reaping the benefits.

KS is taking a leadership role in education technology by sponsoring Kūkulu Kaiaulu 2.0: Building Global Communities. The Kamehameha Schools Education Technology Conference is open to public and private school educators and is slated for June 9-10, from 7:30-4:30 at the Neal Blaisdell Center.

“In the past, many technology conferences focused on technology and not as much on how to effectively use technology in the classroom,” said Director or Education Technology Services Dean Tomita.”This conference focuses on technology integration and covers everything from Wikispaces to Web 2.0.”

According to Tomita, educators will get much more out of the conference than a new set of technology tools. “One of the biggest advantages of the conference is that it will allow teachers, administrators and technology leaders to network and share ideas,” he said
