SARTELL — Sartell Middle School students became the teachers for the community tonight (Tuesday) with the Education Done Differently event.

About 15 students showcased their class projects that they created using their iPads.

Brad Scherer is the Instructional Technology Specialist at the middle school. He says student engagement has grown thanks to the program.

“So we have really seen student engagement pick up and take interest and take ownership in their own education,” says Scherer.

Members of the community were encouraged to ask students questions about their projects.

Projects included movies, apps, and websites students created.

Scherer says the event was a way to show the community how useful the program has been.

“This is to showcase the community, look what you invested in and look at the return we are seeing,” says Scherer.

The full access program is also being used in the high school.
