Last spring up to 5 teachers from Sandy Knoll participated in the digital writing class and are currently carrying their skill forward into their classrooms. Even more effectively carrying forward new ideas for needs to their principal. The whole school is benefiting from their pro-action and plans are i place for teachers to have digital projectors and mini-document cameras for each room with carts to put them together with their class computers as real presentation stations.
Teachers were fired up in their school and some returned in the summer to put in place their class web sites which are used now for communications with parents and class project and activity organizers.... they used the MAPS district web teachers.mapsnet.org sites and weebly to create some wonderful web sites -- their personal class web Presence, if you will, to communicate and interact more effectively.
Check out a few of their sites:
