We know because we visited a few 12-year-olds after middle school one day. From left: Guthrie, Jake, Manoush and Ayelle.

This story is part of New Tech City's series on education and technology.

In this episode of our podcast:

  • We kick off a month of podcasts on kids and technology! Exciting!
  • We talk with listener Dierdre Shetler, a middle school tech teacher in Phoenix, Arizona. Hear how she approaches technology with more than 800 kids in a lower-income, immigrant-heavy district.

...and... best for last...
