Our 8th grade students just completed their Tech Balance Infographics and they turned out, well, pretty awesome!  This was a project we have never done before and we also used online programs that we pretty much foreign to us teachers and the students.  Not only did students learn more about how to balance tech into their busy lives, they all learned how to use new programs to create their infographics, something none of them have ever done before and such a great skill to learn!  And the most important part of the project, they took the time to research, learn and relay information about a part technology balance they felt passionate about and are now ADVOCATES for Technology Balance.  Pretty amazing!  Nice work 8th graders!
