At the high school, we now have 5 carts of Samsung Chromebooks. Although we had some network issues during the first few weeks, we feel we are making progress and making the necessary adjustments to rectify these issues. So I want to brag about what some of our teachers are doing!!!

Mrs. Turner (Science Department) has her Biotechnology students doing some great things also. She created one Google Presentation and shared it with the class. Then the students were to add their information to the presentation and place the contents in chronological order while all collaborating on the same document at the same time! Students were put in charge of their own learning and will be teaching each other on the various concepts!
Mrs. Hanson (Spanish) reviewed with her class using a website called Kahoot! This proved to be a great way to actively involve all students in her class and reviewing for an assessment.
Ms. Schnoes (Business Department) has just started using Google Classroom with one of her classes. She is also piloting this to see how it can benefit our students.
We are starting a Chrome Cadre here at the high school where a small group of teachers will get together once a week to work on all things Chrome. I am very excited about this group and know it will greatly benefit our teachers and students.
I know there are many other teachers doing wonderful things and I will continue to update you on them! I am so proud to work with the teachers here at ELC. Many are very willing to try new things to enhance their student's learning.
