Summer Technology Institute '12

I've had a fantastic time this week at University of Maine's Summer Technology Institute. Working with about one hundred educators from around the state.  

There were a number of highlights this week and one of them was having Channel 5 visit and interview my students who have helped support the teachers.

Example of Google Docs in Action.

Mr. Hanish uses Google Docs to handle group work with his class.

This example of work together on an essay and seeing how it benefits all the students. Not only does it show how the legwork falls upon the student. That way they are learning how to digitize analog (if I can call it that) work, and are responsible for owning their portfolios.
