Timeline of Technology Implementation
Get Real - Resources to Engage All Learners - Summer 2013
During the summer of 2013, Seymour Community Schools decided to offer four GET REAL workshops. Offering a technology device to any of the teaching staff who would donate one day of their summer and participating in checkpoints throughout the following school year.
All participating elementary staff was given a Kindle Fire HD and shown how register it, add apps, and how it could possibly be used in students hands. All participating secondary staff were given a Chromebook and shown how to register it, use Google Docs, and My Big Campus.
Each participant agreed to participate in quarterly 'checkpoints' the school year of 2013 - 2014. Such checkpoints so far have been to watch videos from our subscription to Atomic Learning and to create data using Google Docs.
