Tosh's TCEA Takeaways!

Last week, I traveled to Austin for a full week of educational technology training and learning. I was able to take sessions with edtech greats such as Tracy Clark (pictured on the right.) I explored many tools that will be great to incorporate into relevant and standards-based lessons this semester, so expect some invitations to lunch n- learns in the coming months. Here are three great options that stood out.

TCEA Connected Educator Twitter Chat!

Last Tuesday evening, the Birdville Digital Learning team met together in a hotel lobby in Austin to do a "meet and tweet" event that was joined by Rafranz Davis from Lufkin ISD. During the chat about the benefits of connecting with other educators, two Watauga Middle School connected educators joined in the chat: ELA teacher, Heather Raynsford and Social Studies teacher, Elizabeth Cumbie. They joined the conversation with other BISD teachers, administrators, our guest host, librarians, academic coaches, and the digital learning team for thirty minutes of virtual connecting through Twitter.
