4 Days of Training

We have just finished 4 days of training with an awesome trainer from Apple by the name of John Maschak. We looked at blogs, wikis, RSS, iWeb, Garageband, Flickr, Nings and many other Web 2.0 tools. The staff has come out of this training excited and energized about integrating technology into their classrooms.

Now all I need to do is sustain this excitement as we move forward!!!!

The Beginning of our Journey

On Tuesday Dec.16, 2008 we rolled out our laptops to our teaching staff at GCHS. This begins our school's journey toward implementing a 1-to-1 laptop program next September. Some of the teaching staff are excited while others are not sure where we are headed.

Stay tuned over the coming months as we journey through professional development on our Macbook computers and on Web 2.0 tools.
