Educational Technology Support - January Edition

New Year - New Possibilities

Happy New Year! I hope that each of you had a restful holiday. I know that many of you made New Year resolutions. Many of you are determined to achieve the popular "lose weight" resolution. You plan to work out more, eat healthy, and/or get on one of the many diets available. You probably set your personal resolution, but have you set your professional resolution?

My professional resolution for the schools I support is to help teachers help students "exercise" their brains through preparation for the technology fair and the upcoming computerized Georgia Milestones Assessment. (Please note that the computerized version may not be applicable for everyone.) Regarding the Georgia Milestone Assessment, I understand the importance of preparing kids for the constructive response portion of the assessment in terms of using the computer. If you would like my support in this area, please contact me. Additionally, I can show you how to access nonfiction ebooks and lessons for your students. I can even model lessons (face-to-face or online) in your class. The choice is yours.
