2015 is going to be GREAT!!!

Well, it has been a while since I last updated my blog...no excuses but I have been busy!

I am so excited to see our teachers embrace technology and infuse it within their curriculum. The best thing the technology is not the center of the lesson. The technology is just a tool to help them achieve the learning! I know we have things that we can and will make better in regards to technology but we have come along way in 1.5 years.

We just received another shipment of Chromebooks. We are trying to decide the best model to go with although they essentially do the same thing.

We will be busy this spring getting ready for our roll out to our 9-12th grade students this fall. Our high school teachers have done a great job of trying some new things within their classroom to get ready for the 1:1 environment.

Today, Mrs. Wheatley (High School English) & Mrs. Christensen (1st grade) teamed up to work with Storybird and write stories. This is a first step in a collaboration effort between these teachers that is only emerge with awesome learning! Here are some of the pictures of the high school students helping the 1st grade students get logged in and begin their first story.

2015 is sure to be a challenging but awesome year!!!
