Clark’s blog is an opportunity for him to share his expertise with using cutting edge technology that will help prepare students for an ever changing future. Not only will topics center around how students can get their hands on the latest technology, rarely available to young students, but they will also shed light on how students can be engaged in real life problem solving, develop skills needed to think critically, and how to persevere through challenges.
