Day 3

I can't stop thinking about how we can make use of the things we are learning. People need to see the value of the tools and what better way to do that than to have those that are using them showcase how. As I look towards staff meetings for the year, I am thinking about how to promote the use of the tech tools. Steve is promoting the idea of starting a staff blog where people share their ideas. This might be a way for people to share their ideas and the cool things they are doing. Another idea might be to start every staff meeting with one tech tool. People who were interested could then pursue more information.

For me personally, I am feeling like I can do much more than what I could last week. Each day brings a bit more clarity. What an exciting feeling!


  1. I totally agree. Yes change is difficult, but if each teacher pushes to change it does become easier and more natural.


  2. I like the idea of introducing one new tech idea at meetings then those who are interested can meet to learn more.

  3. For our students' sake it would be great if we as a staff could work on something common, to create a similar understanding for everyone...Cristin just suggested a Mahoney delicious site (spurred by Andee's comment), where every teacher could access some great stuff, regardless of current ability. We're all at different places, and we always will be.
