Catching Up to Today’s Teens: Educating through Technology Academy

Event Overview

In need of a new way to teach students about their rights and responsibilities AND maintain their interest?  Tired of the same implementation ideas and topics? Then join us for this one day training that will combine technology and students’ rights.  Participants of the training will obtain innovative ideas for teaching youth about laws and rights that are relevant to them.  Who should attend?

  • Language Arts/Journalism Teachers: Learn how you can educate youth AND get them excited about it. Our newly designed website allows students to submit their own articles and have them posted on our website.
  • Social Studies Teachers: This new site allows students to learn about their rights in a fun way by using scenarios that are relevant to youth today.  Youth can vote, ask an attorney about their rights, and so much more!
  • School Resource Officers: Teach youth about the law through video, debate, virtual tours, reality stories of teens and the law and games. 
  • Drama teachers: Learn how your students can design and star in their own educational video that they can post on our site.  Combine knowledge and drama fun for this innovative way to learn!
