As we seek to celebrate your students’ accomplishments and also learn from each other’s pin-up techniques, we invite BTES members to share with us online content from end-of-term student work. This may take the form of online galleries and exhibits, or invitations to view online reviews. We will be sharing this content through the BTES social media platforms. As we approach the end of this interesting Spring 2020 term, follow BTES on social media to watch for innovative forms of online teaching / learning / production happening in building technology and design in our schools.
