Digital Learning News Brief

November 18, 2014

The Bond Passed!

We are already moving quickly in the planning phase for new technology and upgrades district-wide. Two elementary campuses will have a total technology makeover in the early Spring! Wireless networking will be available for everyone, everywhere when the roll-out is complete.

The most exciting part of the bond for us is Project Innovate. Starting in January, teachers can personalize their innovations with their own teacher iPad Mini. To receive yours, sign up for a brief training where you will receive your iPad immediately. Registration links will be published in a December Digital Learning News Brief. The first 100 to sign up and complete their training will also receive $15 credit for instructional apps.

Twitter Chats for Professional Learning

Tonight we will discuss Google Apps for Education. Below is a preview of the questions:
  • What have you heard about BISD Google Apps for Education as a teaching and learning resource?

  • How can teachers and students use Google Apps, specifically Drive, for innovation and creativity?

  • What training or support do you need to further your use of Google in the Classroom?

Join us from 8:00-8:30 PM on Twitter!
