Want to learn about new technology, but just can’t seem to find the time? Fret no more! Beginning April 4, the EVSC ICATS will premiere a new LIVE interactive YouTube show called “Lunch and Learn”, a show about technology tools and how teachers and staff can use them to enhance teaching and learning.

ABOUT THE SHOW

We recognize that when you’re at work, your time is in short supply. Keeping that in mind, the ICATS have designed Lunch and Learns to be short and sweet and full of technology goodness. The show will broadcast weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 11:00 AM CST and will last 10-15 minutes. If you want to join the show early, there will be a countdown timer and background music starting at 10:55 AM.

Each show will be recorded live on YouTube and later posted on the ICATS website to watch anytime. The show is interactive with you the viewer, so if you have a question or want to leave a comment, you can do that with either Twitter using the hashtag #evsclunchlearn, using the YouTube chatpod on the live stream, or later in the comments section on the ICATS website. We will either answer you live on the show if we have time or respond later after the show.
