Tuesday Tech Talk Newsletter

5 November 2013

Welcome!

I'm trying a new technology to deliver the weekly newsletter. I produced this week's newsletter using the new Web 2.0 tool called Smore which allows for the creation of newsletters, posters, and other media types. I thought it might jazz up a boring old text email. Let me know if you like this new format. And try Smore out for yourself - it would be terrific for students to use to demonstrate knowledge.

The school with the highest percentage of it's population participating in the SpeakUp Survey will receive a Technology Incentive Package (TIP) based on their School Improvement Plan's (SIP) defined needs. Here is where the North District stands:



  • DELAWARE: 0 students, 0 teachers, 0 parents, 0 administrators
  • NORTH HIGH: 0 students, 0 teachers, 1 parents, 0 administrators
  • NORTH JR HIGH: 0 students, 0 teachers, 0 parents, 0 administrators
  • OAK HILL: 3 students, 0 teachers, 0 parents, 0 administrators
  • SCOTT: 677 students, 2 teachers, 0 parents, 0 administrators
  • VOGEL: 0 students, 0 teachers, 0 parents, 0 administrators


Here are the details you need to participate:


So get the word out to parents/guardians via newsletters, and make sure you do the survey yourself. Let's bring the TIP to the North District!
