Technology-wise it has been very busy around here. The City of Whitesboro offered an e-cycling clean up for used technology. I got rid of 11 PCs from my garage and hauled off 5 from the Police Dept. and 7 from the City of Whitesboro offices. I did this because there were 6 of them that were suitable for inclusion in our “Computers for Kids” program co-sponsored by myself and the Whitesboro Chamber of Commerce. My Computer Tech class will have a lot to clean up and install hard drives in next week.
I have received the syllabus for my summer session classes in my Master’s Program. My professor seems like a great guy and I look forward to working with him. I am SO ready to get started. My first class will be advanced data manipulation and presentation in Office 2013. I will be doing advanced Flash animation during the second part of the summer.
I did not get a lot feedback from the Online Safety post so I am not going to continue that thread. I just want to remind everyone that you need to know where your kids are and what they are doing online as well as in the real world. I will pick up a couple of new apps (Autocrat and Diigo) as soon as I have a moment.
I am finishing up our Digital Fluency program so I must be brief in order to finish a lesson plan for the training. Hope to hear from you guys soon.
