As the result of a grant, East Metro Integration District now has someone to help integrate technology into the classroom. We are fortunate to have Carl Anderson join the team. Some of you may know him by his blog, Techno Constuctivist. Carl is interested in pushing the boundaries so his posts are interesting but his blog is also a great resource for sites that can be used by teachers and students alike.
In addition, the district is stepping out into the online world. You can now follow us on twitter or join us on facebook. Our superintendent, Brenda Cassellius has a blog as does Kristine Black, the principal of my school, Harambee Elementary. Officially my district is beginning to realize the importance of the online picture the world sees.
Personally I’m delighted to see that my district and my school are trying new things. Our students need to see us taking these risks.
