I talked about mobile devices and BYOD with a representative from Cisco earlier this week. It was a great chat. Cisco will publish it in October/November. Exciting!

BYOD first story!

We have started a BYOD system here in Katy, and we are so very excited about the transition to students having the ability to access and utilize knowledge when they need it most! Quick story: We do announcements on video (just started two days ago). I made mention to my news anchors of an app for the iPad in which the iPad acted as a teleprompter. Yesterday one of the students brought in the iPad and the kids used it as a teleprompter for afternoon announcements. They were able to look at the camera and interact with the audience!
How cool!!!

Holy Moly!

It's been a while.
This summer I got the opportunity to jump to junior high, and I took it! I am thrilled to be able to discuss education and life with pre-teens! They have been amazing, just as the staff has. I have been working on building background knowledge in technology in education. Friday I got to help 7th grade kids use storyjumper to create books about Native American tribes. I am super excited to start our staff Book Club and meet with my first Student Roundtable group this coming Friday! Exciting Stuff!
