Student technology showcase in Lansing Nov. 28

Students from across Michigan will gather at the state Capitol on Nov. 28 to showcase how they're using technology in the classroom to enhance learning.

About 125 students from 35 Michigan schools -- most of them public -- will set up the technology demonstration in the Capitol Rotunda.

They'll show off how student-created QR codes are being used in library scavenger hunts, demonstrate a "Jeopardy"-style game that reinforces core subject matter, display videos that teach younger students how to excel in math, and much more.

The showcase, hosted by the Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning, provides an excellent opportunity to see how technology can be used to supplement -- not supplant -- traditional classroom learning.

The event runs from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at the state Capitol in Lansing. Attendance is open to the public.
