Closing the Gap Between K-12 and Higher Education with Technology

Closing the Gap Between K-12 and Higher Education with Technology

Tue Feb 16, 2016 at 12:08 PM

On Wednesday, February 10, the Technology Advisory Committee (TAC) hosted its annual K-12 forum and luncheon. The purpose of this forum is to give technology directors and administrators in K-12 and at Oakland University at the chance to interact and collaborate. This year, the forum was well attended by Oakland University SEHS faculty and a wide variety of local K-12 personnel, including technology directors, teachers, principals, and an assistant superintendent. Our own Dean Jon Margerum-Leys facilitated the discussions.

We discussed “hot technology topics” in K-12 and at the university. Two presenters from the Oakland University faculty, Mark Olson and Anica Bowe, discussed ongoing projects and research with their students. Other speakers included Dinah Ramirez from GALE/Cengage and Christina Schneider from Michigan e-Library (MeL) who presented information about their collaboration and what is new in MeL. Who knew there was so much free information? Check out their link at http://www.mel.org/.
