The Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA) and PBS LearningMedia are pleased to announce Mrs. Dana Parish of Bristow Middle School as the grand-prize winner of the PBS Get Your Tech On program. Mrs. Parish won a classroom set of Chromebrooks and a document camera for use in her classroom. She was recently presented with her prizes in a ceremony at Bristow Middle School.
Get Your Tech On is a national initiative that educates teachers about how to maximize digital content and technology usage in the classroom. Get Your Tech On highlights technology-themed resources and tools.
“PBS LearningMedia offers many curriculum-targeted digital resources and because of the partnership with OETA and the [State Department of Education], it has allowed our students the opportunity to expand their knowledge even further,” Parish said. “I am thankful to work in a technology progressive district that has looked at ways of getting technology in the hands of students through various avenues.”
Parish plans to use the Chromebooks and document camera to expand her use of Google Classroom for assignments and tests, develop digital curriculum for use in the classroom and utilize additional PBS LearningMedia resources in her classroom, among other things.
