ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – On Wednesday, students became the teachers at an elementary school in Albuquerque.
Fourth and fifth graders at North Star showed teachers how to use mobile apps they’ve learned during their technology leadership class.
Some of the apps are Draw and Tell, Book Creator and Puppet Pals.
The goal is to provide teachers with ideas on how to use these apps in the classroom.
“The students can have fun learning and doing activities and learning new things using technology,” said student Paige Posa.
“It’s not about the technology, but what we do with it that matters, and these students are really empowered with this knowledge and this great tool to teach other people,” said teacher April Requard.
These students meet after school once a week to help further the technology program at the school.
