Student Technology Showcase at MSAD#48

For an impressive event showcasing student work with technology, you won't be disappointed with this yearly extravaganza. I attended a couple of years at the invitation of Kern and Keith Kelley, and I was blown away with the enthusiasm and quality of the work that is being done in this school district.

See how technology is changing the way students play video games and how they can use them to stay fit. Here you can boogie with Dance Dance Revolution where players dance in an intense workout or use the Wii gaming system and try your hand at virtual tennis, bowling and baseball.


There are a number of technology showcases going on in the library. Take the opportunity to comment on student online weblogs. Maybe play with some of the technology from the high school or create a new song with GarageBand. Here we display a few of the multimedia tools that the students have access too.

Computer Lab

Here visitors can write program using Scratch software.


Try your hand at reading the news. Each morning students broadcast announcements to the homerooms, now here’s your chance to see if you can make it as a Morning News Anchor!
