Doon CATC Update
Many thanks as well for using the mobile technology available to us by reserving them in the booking system, sending them on to the next teacher, and properly plugging them to charge at the end of each school day.
When absent, please remember to have a colleague at school check in with your supply so that the devices are sent on and plugged in at the end of the day. There have been quite a few issues with OTs (understandably) leaving Chromebooks improperly plugged in, or left in incorrect places. Even with the best laid plans, OTs are not familiar with our flow, and errors will be made. Please always have a Doon staff member double check at the end of the day so they are ready for the next day.

We want our students to have spaces for inquiry and hands on creation. Stay tuned for more on this growing trend!

EdCamp is a day of sharing, networking, and discussions around what matters most in education. This event is participant-driven and is considered an “unconference” without a traditional presentation or speaker. Participants arrive ready to engage in debate, share stories, and demonstrate their passion for issues in education. During the course of the day, you will have an opportunity to attend four sessions related to different topics or themes.
You will learn something new, explore different perspectives, maybe make a new friend or contact, and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!
There is no cost for participants to attend EdCamp. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop, tablet or other mobile device with wireless internet to view sites shared throughout the day, take notes, or get involved in back channel discussions on social media sites.
