High-tech school supplies on display in Columbus

Thousands of Ohio educators and policy makers are shopping for equipment and educational supplies at the annual Ohio School Boards Association conference.

Educators walked from booth to booth at the convention looking for new technology ideas for the classroom. Vendors showcased products that they say will help students learn and achieve.

Patrick Brown of Verco Manufacturing displayed what he calls the first ergonomic desk chair for grade school students. Brown says the chairs let students sit still for longer and pay more attention to their teachers.

Beyond the classroom, John McCallum of Securtex Digital displayed camera surveillance systems.

The Ohio School Board Association Conference continues through Wednesday at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
