FC: Dabbling in Technology
1: In my department we are trying to incorporate the use of technology so as to model to teachers how to implement it into their practice. We have had some successes and some struggles.
3: Success: we have lots of equipment at our disposal.
4: Struggle: Many members of the department are uncomfortable with using the technology due to lack of training or experience. We are comfortable with what we know.
6: A Smile As Sweet As Spring | Success: Our director supports us in getting anything we think will help our practice. She LIKES technology.
8: April Showers Bring May Flowers | Struggle: Too much time passes between when we get the equipment and when it gets installed or when we get trained. We have three brand new Promethean Boards for nearly two years that are not hooked up
10: Conclusion: We love the idea of technology, but we are having a hard time making the change to implement it fully and use it to capacity.
11: it's always spring in a mother's heart | There is Hope: We have hired a media specialist part time to assist our department in setting up and maintaining our website and she is very knowledgeable and willing to support our growth in other areas of technology as well.
12: spring: a. The season of the year, occurring between winter and summer, during which the weather becomes warmer and plants revive, extending in the Northern Hemisphere from the vernal equinox to the summer solstice and popularly considered to comprise March, April, and May. b. A time of growth and renewal.
