School Learning

Summer has flown by! I was amazed this summer by several teachers who choose to take online classes to learn more about Advanced PowerPoint, Blogs, Skype, Digital Storytelling, and SharePoint. Several teachers will be creating blogs with their students to extending the learning and give students a voice. Ann B. explains that "blogging broadens the learner on all levels, creating a new decibel for their voice while reaching an ever expansive audience." Rachel B. made plans this summer to add podcasting to the Primary School's Library website. The first podcasts can be found in the lower left hand corner at http://www.trussvillecityschools.com/Teachers/rachel.brockman/default.aspx Some teachers are learning how to use Skype to connect to one another and even to bring experts in for professional development.
