Over 300 teachers from across the state came together today on WKU's campus.

Kentucky educators met as a part of TeachMeet.

Teachers were both learners and educators at the free 'un-conference.' TeachMeet focused on technology tools and tips in the classroom. With over 70 sessions, each one was only 20 minutes long - which kept the day moving quick rapidly.

"Kids have the ability to create, build and make, and we wanna foster that. And as teachers we want to foster that. As teachers, some of us grew up in the old days when we only have pencil and paper and textbooks and so we're trying to do better," said Allen Martin, District Technology Resource Teacher, Bowling Green City Schools.

The idea of this meeting and learning seminar originated in Scotland.

The concept then took off in Nashville, where many Kentucky teachers participated.

Bowling Green City Schools decided to do their own, and is now in its ninth year of TeachMeet Kentucky.
