10/30 Faculty Meeting Presentation

Here’s what I presented at tonight’s faculty meeting:

Five: I am perfectly happy with the educational technology in my life. I know how to use the tools that are available to me and everything I want to use functions properly.

Fist: The exact opposite of that.

Where are you right now?

My goal is to get you to open up your hands.

2) 1:1 training sessions and support

Some topics to draw your attention to:

1) Surface Management with HP Classroom Manager

What I’d like to ask of you:

1) Join up with MattieByrd and me in discussing edtech. We’re having regular discussions about the past, present, and future of edtech and would love to bring in more voices over coffee and tea. Let one of us know if you’d like to get in one the next discussion, and you can be a part of picking the time.
