Gov. Perdue visits Kannapolis to present award

KANNAPOLIS — Gov. Bev Perdue visited Kannapolis Middle on Thursday to honor the school for being a winner of the 2012 North Carolina Innovator in Digital Learning Award.
Students showed Perdue how they use technology to create clay-mation stop motion animation and iPads as part of Language Arts classes.
“The digital world is bringing us profound changes and it is helping to revolutionize education,” said Perdue in a press release. “These teachers have created 21st century classrooms that take advantage of technology. They use it to engage students directly in their own learning and capture their attention in ways not possible with traditional textbooks and chalkboards.”
Kannapolis Middle is one of only 10 schools and districts in the state to be honored with the inaugural award.
The school has become a leader in digital technology, and the governor praised the district for its efforts to use technology to advance learning and education.
Principal Dr. Chip Buckwell credited his staff for embracing technology and using it to help children excel in the classroom.
