Thanks for attending the Technology meeting yesterday. Our next Meeting is Thursday, November 15th at 4:00 pm at the ESC. Again, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns related to current or future Technology plans. Please invite any other staff that is interested in the District Technology Committee.
Attached is the slide set I displayed - please add comments or make changes on the keynote or via email. Again, the purpose of the slides is to look at how we can work together more as one to help students/teachers with technology from the machine to the integration in the classroom.
