To showcase the School District of Washington’s iBelieve initiative, each month the district invites an educator to share with the Board of Education an exciting digital activity taking place in their classroom.


The focus is not only on the technology being used, but how learning is enhanced within the classroom.


For the Feb. 25, 2015, meeting at the District Office, the Board of Education heard from Four Rivers Career Center Automotive Technology students Tom Meyer (Washington High School) and Brian Voss (Union High School), along with instructors Dan Brinkmann and Gary Maune, on how technology is assisting the learning process in the their department.


Meyer and Voss gave the presentation, which lasted approximately 15 minutes. The two students, along with Brinkmann and Maune, answered questions following the presentation.


The students spoke partially about how the use of tractors has helped and developed agriculture over the last several years.


Specifically, they broke down the history and use of the 901 Series Tractor, also known as the Powermaster Tractor, which the Ford Motor Company came out with in 1959, and the Gold Demonstrator Tractor, which Ford dealers began showing off in 1959, and also the Ford Ferguson.


The students also showed the Board of Education a video about the late Harold Brock, the designer the Ford 8N Tractor and the John Deere 4020, two of the world's important advancements in tractor technology.


In the automotive technology classroom, modern technology is an important tool in the learning process.


“Gary and I use Thinglink, Prezi and Schoology in our class,” Brinkmann said. “Mostly the technology we use is the scanners that link to the vehicles we work on. We can connect the scanner to the vehicle and the overhead projector at the same time watching live data from the vehicle.”
