We are planning a PTA meeting surrounding on child safety. Topics such as getting to school safely, exploring the Internet safely etc. will be included. How nice it was to find video segments from Discovery Education Streaming that we can use! Several are very appropriate. The principal made a notation in his palm pilot to use one video in October of ’08. Guess he liked it lol. Glad I could help him find something useful for his school.

Today I attended Tech Expo ’08 hosted by BOCES Lower Hudson Regional Information Center. The Edith Macy Conference center is a beautiful facility. It was nice seeing some DEN faces there. I learned so much from Alan November. I feel energized to get back into teaching our staff. One of my schools is all about building Global Connections. Yet, we don’t utilize global connections to its fullest. Small components used here, small components used there. I’m ready to integrate!!! Wikis, blogs, emails, podcasts, RSS feeds, etc. my techie toolbag is stocked again and ready to go.
