Knappa teachers and students from grades two through 12 will show off high-tech skills they acquired during the 2006-07 school year on Monday.

Starting at 5 p.m. - before the Knappa School District's 7 p.m. budget committee meeting and 7:30 p.m. board meeting -- six teachers will set up in classrooms to present their recently acquired technology skills.

The six were trained by six other instructors who participated last year in the Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) program, which aims to improve schools' use of technology in the classroom. In Knappa, the lessons have filtered down all the way to second-graders, who created PowerPoint presentations this year.

The demonstrations are at Knappa High School, 41535 Old Highway 30.
