Teachers are invited to a weekend event to help prepare them for the day their schools could put computers in the hands of all students. EdCampSEMO, a professional-development conference, will focus on 1:1 technology in Southeast Missouri schools Saturday/tomorrow at Cape Central High School. Among those attending will be members of the Cape School District, where a $1 million program is expected to be implemented in 2014 at the high school. Assistant Superintendent of the district Dr. Sherry Copeland will be on hand to gather ideas about how to implement the program to provide portable personal computers for teacher and student use at all grade levels. Introduction of laptops for high school students will cost $1 million and will be paid out of the district's budget. Copeland expects implementation at Central Junior High in fall 2014. EdCampSEMO is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Commons Area and registration information can be found at edcampsemo.info.
