Last May, two A.H.S. students submitted four proposals to the state technology and communications organization called TCEA. TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) is a global, nonprofit, member-based organization supporting the use of technology in education. Founded in 1980, TCEA has been playing a vital role in increasing technology funding and access for PreK-16 schools for 37 years. The 17,000-member association is led by a grassroots board of directors, all of whom are professional educators, and TCEA’s offerings all support educators in the field who are enhancing curriculum with digital tools. Each year, thousands of educators ranging from teachers, administrators, librarians, and other instructional support specialists attend TCEA in Austin, Texas in February. TCEA Presentation During the week of February 5th-9th, two of our very own Anna High School seniors, Rachel James and Matt Padgett, attended TCEA and presented to over 50+ educators showing them a student’s perspective on how teachers can use "Social Media in the Classroom" and how Schoology, our district’s new L.M.S. system, works for both teachers and students. Senior Rachel James said, “After seeing TCEA on Twitter, I came up with the idea[to submit a presentation proposal] last February, and we took about a month to fully get all our ideas into a usable presentation.” She also said the overall experience “was so humbling and exciting to be around those who share the same passion about education as me.” While at TCEA, Rachel and Matt got to attend other sessions presented by educators and Rachel said, “The sessions were so informative and the teachers who went are doing great things for this ISD. For example, in Cindy Lewis' presentation that we attended, she had so much enthusiasm for teaching and helping students shine! I'm so excited for what they are bringing back to this school.” When asked what other information she would like to add, Rachel said, “Teachers are big fans of free T-Shirts and pens.” Anna ISD is very proud to have these student leaders teaching teachers about educational technology!
