"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the tradewinds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." --Mark Twain

What if . . .

What if . . .
  • We could have wi-fi on the school buses like a district in South Carolina?
  • We ran a report of all taxpayers over 60 and asked their opinion on things. They have been a "forgotten" stakeholder who have time on their hands for assistance such as volunteering, mentoring, or tutoring.
  • A class made an app together. It is a way of writing and critically thinking about a real world situation.
  • We had a "Napsterfication of learning" --Graham Brown-Martin
  • We used QR codes on district announcements, mailouts, and things going home from campuses?
  • We had a New Tech High School like Coppell ISD?
  • We had an app for iOS and Andriod like Comal ISD?
  • We looked at a different system like the FB page or app or twitter for disseminating information?
