Technology Updates

Week of November 5, 2010


Technology Thursday

                Curious about the Mimio or resources on the Technology Website?  How a Mimio works?  Or what the ‘the best’ sites on the technology page are? Would you like ideas on how to incorporate more technology into your teaching?  Thursday after school beginning at 3:10 I will be in the Media Center Computer Lab to work with teachers in exploring the technology website while using the Mimio, and answering any related questions.  I plan to keep this less than 30 minutes.  J  This is optional for anyone who would like to come.  If you have a specific question let me know in advance so I can find the best resources for you.
