  • Focus on Digital Learning

    Digital technology is an everyday part of learning in Mingo County, but on February 5, 2014, in conjunction with national and statewide efforts, Digital Learning Day showcased how technology can make learning more fun, interactive, and accessible to all. Students at Burch Elementary School, along with teachers Billie Croaff and Joy Hunt, participated in a telepresence lesson given by West Virginia Teacher of the Year Erin Sponaugle of Berkeley County. Students in Kanawha, Harrison, and Raleigh Counties also joined as Mrs. Sponaugle taught students about the landforms and symbols that represent our great state.
