It is hard to believe that another school year is almost complete! This has been a terrific year, and I have enjoyed working with so many SD73 teachers to help support them in planning/implementing technology enhanced learning projects in their classrooms and schools.
There are many exciting initiatives, projects, and opportunities that I am already looking forward to in the 2013/14 school year. Here are just a few of the highlights:
– Deployment of Google Apps for Education accounts to our students (and interested staff). Deployment will likely be staggered throughout the fall as schools receive the Linux image upgrade.
– A class set/cart of Chromebooks that will be available for SD73 teachers to sign out and use with their classes. I will work with you to use these devices in engaging and powerful ways and help plan some great lessons and activities using web-based tools, including Google Apps.
– A Kamloops TedX Youth event in November, 2013 – stay tuned for more details!
– Tons of great workshop topics: Mobile learning/apps for literacy & numeracy, SMARTboards, YouTube in the Classroom, Google Docs/Drive and much more!
I hope you all have a wonderful summer, and I look forward to working with you in the fall! If there are any workshop topics you would like to see offered, presentations you would like me to do at your school, or projects you would like me to support you with in your classrooms, please let me know so I can connect with you in September to plan!
