Season 4, Episode 19: The Future of the 9th Grade Experience at the Pennsylvania Educational Technology Expo and Conference (PETE&C) 2022


This episode is a wrap-up for the 9th Grade Experience Podcast’s appearance at the Pennsylvania Education Technology Expo and Conference (PETE&C) in Hershey, Pennsylvania, on Monday, February 7, 2022. Excerpts featured on this episode were take from the session titled “The Future of the 9th Grade Experience” which was held on the first day of the 4-day event “that provides quality programs focused on technology in the educational field.”

This is the second time the podcast has been invited to present at the conference. In 2021, the session was virtual, so it was nice to have an in-person audience this time to talk about ninth grade experiences for students throughout Pennsylvania.

Three brave educators - Beth, Nicole and Kayla - representing different sized high schools throughout the state joined the panel  They gave us different perspectives on ninth grade students, their own ninth grade experiences, different things that students can focus on to be content creators and things they should know at the end of high school to ensure technology success in high school and beyond.
