ALEXANDRIA, La. - Educators from all across Rapides Parish went to class Saturday morning to learn about new ways to teach their classes.

It was the discovery education 'virtual conference'.

Cenla teachers gathered in Alexandria, but the conference was broadcast globally.

Conference leaders taught participants new ways to use up-and-coming technology, like iPads and tech-books, as a way to reach a this generation of students.

"Because it's going faster than we are, the technology is," says Rita Mathews. "And I think the most important thing is because teachers are all about their students achievement, and this is about student engagement, and if we can engage our students, then we know that they learn more."

The conference was broadcast simultaneously in countries including Germany, Australia and India.
