  2. Rhys:

    I know your in the building somewhere 🙂 but can we change our meeting to 5th period. We will discuss at the meeting to see what Hindy says. I mean I can do 4th I would just switch my schedule for the day. I know Hindy and I have 5th period lunch.

    See you at the meeting.

    Mr. Stegman

  3. Suggestions for the CEP:

    Page 2
    * “…two students per computer for approximately 15 mins per class…”
    – with routine classroom use and class projects, this will probably be a little looser
    – suggestion: “Students will be assigned weekly skill-building activities (typing games, internet searches, blog commenting, etc.) or participate in curriculum based projects involving technology.”

    * “…Apple technology with our funds provided by RESO grant.”
    – suggested addition: “…to move toward a standard set of tools to facilitate grade-wide planning and development of projects utilizing Mac-native software (i.e. iLife).”

    Page 3
    * add to 2nd bullet, “…, including published writing on the school website.”
    * add a new bullet, “Digital media production projects published to the school website and/or printed.”

    * add to last bullet on page: “Development of an ‘online learning network’ through the school website, which all persons involved in our school (teachers, students, administration, parents) may access and contribute to…

    * add to first paragraph under staff tech ed plan: “…SMARTBOARD, and the school website (a ‘blog’).”

    Page 4
    * want to mention The Media Spot (me) here? i.e. “We will continue our relationship with The Media Spot through a 30-day contract for staff-wide professional development and classroom consulting on curriculum development and the school website.”

    * Students’ tech ed plan: an action item for TMS and the Tech Team should be to establish a schoolwide best practices routine for Internet research for students.

    Page 5
    * we’ll start a list of recommended Internet resource sites on the right column of the blog
    * add a bullet to the recommendation: “Establish routines for equipment checkout, scheduling and sharing where necessary.”
    * add “Production” to “Digital Media (Production)”

    Page 6
    * add a bullet under Long term…: “Develop ways of extending school-wide technology-based activities and projects using Smartboards.”

  4. Hey Everyone:

    I wanted to say I think today was a successful Tech Team meeting. I am glad we finished the CEP for now. Also, if you notice there are some changes or additions to the Online Learning Network. If you see anything you want to add or see something you want to know about come speak or see one of the Tech Team members. If you know of any websites that would be a good resource for students or teachers let us know and we will add it to the resources section of the Network.

    Mr. Stegman

  5. Hi Rhys,
    I spoke with Ms. Nunziata, and she will free the first grade teachers 1st period on Friday. So- we’ll see you then.
