Posted by Tracy Poelzer on September 10, 2013 in Uncategorized |

This is it – the start of a brand new school year!  I spent some time this summer coming up with my mantra for the new educational year: FAIL.  This year I want to encourage students and teachers to FAIL.  Now, before you get all worried and question whether I spent WAAAY too much time […]


Planning for Next Year!

Posted by Tracy Poelzer on June 25, 2013 in Uncategorized |

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 […]

This will be the first year I have not been working in a school of my own and helping with the annual year-end slideshow.  Everyone looks forward to it and sharing pictures from all the important events of the year is a great way to remind everyone about all the terrific things that happen at […]

Every year students look forward to the year-end photo slideshow that most schools wind up with at their final assemblies.  Here are my picks for a slideshow sound track for the 2011-2012 school year.  I try to pick songs that are current and that the students will sing along to.  I love hearing them belting […]

Posted by Tracy Poelzer on February 11, 2012 in Uncategorized |

There were a number of great projects and programs running in our district in January, including Screen Smart , Unplug and Play, Family Literacy day/week, Heap the Honda and more.  I am curious about the comments that I receive from colleagues each year when these events take place, wondering if, as Technology Coordinator, I’m “upset” […]


Tips to Start the New Year Cyber-Safely!

Happy New Year! When chatting with students upon to return to school this week, many of them tell me they received Christmas gifts that are technology-related (computers, iPod touches, gaming consoles, cell phones, etc.).  My own two sons are no different.  Many of these wonderful tools have Internet access through WiFi, etc. Our children are […]


Grateful for Google
