Now, more than ever, it is imperative for teachers to design engaging instructional experiences that speak the language of today’s modern students. That being said, the Health & Physical Education Department is striving to place more emphasis on technology resources and effective pedagogy that caters to ALL students, not just those who are naturally athletic or physically active. We hope to harness the productivity and appeal of technology to give every child a comprehensive education that instills in them a lifelong love for being physically healthy.
The Health & Physical Education Department is hosting Tech Fest 2017, open to all Dallas ISD students, featuring contests for student work centered around the importance of staying active and making healthy lifestyle choices. Contest entries should be related to a concept that fosters an appreciation of physical activity and/or healthy lifestyle choices.
Contest winners will be eligible for technology prizes, and the work will be featured at STEM DAY 2017 and on District websites. The deadline for all entries is Tuesday, January 17th, 2017.
