Our UL Student Teachers Share Their Expertise with Parents and Students at Dunn's Technology Night

Dunn's UL student teachers took the opportunity to educate our parents and students at Dunn's Technology Night. Thanks to their interactive lessons, families were able to use the iPads to investigate some educational apps to utilize at home. Each participant also completed a scavenger hunt on Dunn's website to learn where to find useful information for parents and students.
