Three students from Concordia University, Nebraska earned awards in the 2017 Learning with Tech – All Student Contests in the Interactive Media Pre-Service/College student category hosted by the Nebraska Educational Technology Association (NETA).

Education majors, Jessica Luebbe, Allison Wiebe and Megan Ruppert earned 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, respectively. The students prepared for the contest in their Instructional Technology course at Concordia during the fall semester of 2016. The pre-service teachers each created a capstone project in which they developed a WebQuest (web-based lesson/unit plan using technology for their specific content area) to help their future students better meet learning outcomes.

The contest winners will be honored at the spring NETA conference April 20–21, 2017, at the CenturyLink Center Omaha Convention Center.

“The conference will be a great opportunity for these students to network and hear from educators from all over the state,” said Peter Landrey, professor of the Instructional Technology course and Instructional Innovation Specialist at Concordia. “I am so proud of their hard work and the research, application and evaluation they have done to make their projects great.”
