High school students, central office administrators, community members, and teachers led workshops for Auburn Middle School students on CyberDay. Each student was able to choose 3 workshops to attend.

Like many middle schools in Maine, students and staff switched from laptops to iPads this year.  CyberDay was a time to share what had been learned and explore new possibilities.

Some students opted to learn how to make commercials in a session entitled “Welcome to Hollywood” led by Jake Bazinet, a high school junior.  The best student commercials were showcased on the Lewiston-Auburn local access channel.
