Crestwood students had a chance to talk with students at Oelwein to learn more about their SWAT team this week. Via Google Hangout, interested Crestwood students learned how the Oelwein SWAT team is assisting with technology in the Oelwein Community School District. The SWAT Team is a hands-on study of technology integration in an educational context. In addition to solving problems for their classmates and teachers, students complete projects which increase their own technology knowledge and address problems or solutions in educational technology integration.
