How do teachers keep up with the latest ideas about technology practice?
They go to lunch.
The Technology Department is offering faculty and staff a new slate of Tech Lunches, monthly 30-minute conversations about a tech-centric topic, relevant to either teacher daily use or future student use of technology.
Last year's topics covered ways to organize Gmail inbox, methods to structure Drive folders, ideas to implement iPads in a classroom, and places to find cool Google tools for students.
This year we are starting our Tech Lunches line up with our favorite interrogative adverb - why. Why use technology in a classroom? Why spend time to learn more about technology? Why take risks to try something innovative?
Teachers bring their lunches but our tekkies provide dessert.
