Smartboards spurs teachers

Everyone at NSES is excited because the new smartboards are here. Two of them are up and running on each floor. Training has begun with all the teachers huddling together sharing ideas. That is a great thing! Many came in early to be apart of this learning. I know technology should not drive the learning but it has added spark to the faculty. That is a huge hurdle. Many (along with some administrators) who in the past were resistant are among those trying out the new equipment. In the coming weeks, I plan to do a PD session on using wikis and blogs. It may seem to some of you reading this like, are you kidding? You have to understand it has taken a long time to get this far. It is baby steps but we are moving forward. In the new year, I have plans to have a third grade at our school collaborate with a third grade with a school from England. I am motivated too!
