Many teachers struggle with figuring out when technology is appropriate. I have found a few activities for use in some of their classes that have then spurred them on to find others. This is what collaboration and integration is all about!
In January, we (the ADW Lead Tech Coaches) will have a meeting of the tech people from all of the ADW schools (at least all that choose to participate) and I am optimistic that this will lead to some excellent sharing opportunities. We are excited at the prospect of finally getting down to the work we signed on for - to help every school find effective ways to use the technology they already have to enhance their own curriculum. We are not trying to make things harder for anyone. Quite the contrary, we hope to make it easy; easy to communicate with other schools, easy to get help when you need it; easy to find free apps and webtools, easy to arrange PD for your staff.
So, let's ring in 2016 with a renewed spirit of cooperation, collaboration and integration!! I'm looking forward to many "aha" moments in the new year!
