With the BISD 1:You initiative well on it's way to completion, many teachers are integrating technology into their lessons in new and innovative ways! But how does all of this translate to your T-TESS evaluation? The Learning Technologies Department has a website to help you figure that out! This site is for teachers and administrators who want to see how technology can be used to improve in all 16 Dimensions of the T-TESS. There are examples, tools, and even important questions to ask when teaching/observing a lesson that integrates technology! Stop by and check it out!

AND....for BISD teachers who want to document their DISTINGUISHED use of technology in the classroom for T-TESS evaluation time...LT Matthew Kitchens is offering a class on creating a professional T-TESS portfolio! The class is being offered twice this summer and you can sign up right now in Eduphoria!
