Radford High School students will be hosting their own session called “What’s App-ening?...Hear it from Us” to talk about apps they use most often.

“A lot of people think using technology makes things a whole lot easier in a way it does, but in reality, it's pretty complicated” said junior Keona Sivivai.

“There’s a whole spectrum of breakout sessions from anywhere from school apps to STEM, Goggle classroom, where we have our teachers come learn and validate the things they’re doing in the classrooms when it comes to digital learning” said Radford High School Principal, James Sunday.
