Dairy Council of California exhibits at California League of Schools Technology ConferenceDairy Council of CA participated in the California League of Schools Technology Conference in February. This conference provided K-12 teachers and administrators with a hands-on experience utilizing technology as a tool to ignite students’ passion for learning. Educators were able to walk away with applicable tools and resources to stay up to date with the changing classroom environment. 

With more schools moving towards 1:1 device implementation in the classroom, teachers were thrilled to hear about online education opportunities available with Dairy Council of CA’s nutrition education curriculum, such as:

In addition to the wide array of K-8 online extension activities, Dairy Council of CA shared a new fully-online high school nutrition education resource called Eat Move Win. This new online nutrition program was a big hit among both middle school and high school teachers, as it met some of the needs they shared with us:

  • Teen-specific nutrition education topics
  • Pre-made Kahoot games
  • Auto-graded quizzes

All in all, the California League of Schools Technology Conference was a great way for Dairy Council of CA to hear what teachers and administrators are looking for in an online resource and to continue to evolve our activities to meet the needs of the evolving classroom environment.
