Great Ideas from your ITRT - Heidi Overfelt

The Bedford County ITRT's have written their own ibook -

We noticed that new teachers coming into the county needed a self-help guide to the technology available to them in Bedford County.

Veteran teachers often needed a refresher to the technology available to them.

So the ITRTs have put together an interactive iBook showcasing basic technology information available to teachers to use in their classroom. The book also answers questions frequently asked by Bedford County teachers.

This book is available to all teachers and is loaded onto BMS ipads 1-10 for teachers to check out and read.

Here is a listing of the chapter headings that you can look forward to:

1. How can my ITRT help me?

2. What Technology Equipment is available for checkout from the county?
