Representative David Harris visited Anne Sullivan Elementary School in Prospect Heights earlier this week. He had been invited by Miss Funk and several of her students when they visited the State Capitol last year to participate in Technology 2015, a display of how students from around the State employ technology in their learning.

Harris was given a tour of several of the classrooms and could see firsthand how the Anne Sullivan students are using technology to improve the learning process. In one classroom the students were online in a video connection with a meteorologist from El Paso, TX, and 7 other classrooms around the nation learning about weather formations.

"It was an informative and exciting visit," said Harris, "and I compliment the Principal and teachers for their creative use of current technology as an important tool in students' learning."
