Laptop Café

Norma, Rosamar and I visited a number of secondary schools in June to share some strategies and resources for using the freshly issued teacher laptops in class. Here is a link to the notes from our session.

We talked about some basic principles of using tech in the classroom; ("There are new ways of doing old things, as well as brand new ways to deliver content and engage students.") we looked at the range of online resources available through the district; ("Check your school library catalog for links to databases, ebooks, etc.) and we shared some projects that teachers have done use some of the new tech tools. ("Digital storytelling on personal choice topics.")
