“In a sea of outstanding submissions, these young technology leaders emerged victorious,” he added.

This is the third year that PSS held a competition for digital learning.

“Every year, we look forward to the Digital Learning Day activities across our school district,” Cruz said. “There have been so many wonderful uses of technology, and our amazing teachers continue to innovate as they integrate technology as a tool not to supplant the curriculum but to enhance it, making learning more engaging and fun.”

Cruz said PSS students continue to show a high degree of technology integration and creativity.

The winning students received several prizes, including a Digital Learning Day champion’s plaque, a medal, school supplies, and an iPad mini.
