Teachers from St. Albans City School's 7th and 8th grade teams closed the year by upgrading their technology toolkit to include collaborative tools that would help them continue their learning community work throughout the summer from different locations. The two day training started with a tech infused agenda that included delicious and Google Apps.
By bookmarking resources using delicious.com they can compile and share thematic resources. By using Google Apps, they will be able to create, edit, and revise documents and organize them using the Grade 7 & 8 Google Site. You will notice the new slideshows they created about their learning community and some of their theme work really coming together. The day ended with conversations about how to use these tools to start planning Electronic Portfolios.
