But Our Journey is Just Beginning
This year marks the end of our pilot program. Next year Pine Creek will be a full 1:1 iPad school.
During these past three years, we have tried a lot, learned a great deal, succeeded in new endeavors, and failed at others. We started this year introducing the staff to basic iPad skills and core apps. We moved onto workflow in the classroom, managing those day-to-day tasks. We dipped our feet into Digital Citizenship and started to see the power of creation with the device.
We have a good foundation from which to build a school where digital learning, in all its forms, is transformative and is integral to what makes Pine Creek such an excellent school. This is our journey.
Almost every month I say this and I mean it - digital learning takes many forms throughout our school. Students and teachers are partnering to create, innovate, collaborate and demonstrate learning. Share your stories with each other (and with me). Talk in the pods. Visit each other’s classrooms. There are so many amazing things being done with our students. Let’s celebrate these moments!
I am a Technology Integration and LMS Specialist by title, but lifelong learner in practice. An Apple Teacher, Google Certified Educator and Microsoft Innovative Educator, my goal is to assist educators in investigating and exploring resources to embed in their instruction. I also hope to be a part of their journey toward an innovative and transformative practice that empowers learners and strengthens their own craftsmanship. I spends my free time with my family, my dogs and a good cup of coffee.
