Technology

First of all.....I am so excited for our new followers and all of the comments we received!
A lot of you asked how we received the amazing Apple Technology.  Last school year a teacher at my school received a one year EETT Grant from the state of Florida that focused on technology in intermediate grades.   A total of 5 schools participated.  (I was ridiculously jealous and kept trying to convince people I was an intermediate teacher, but for some reason no one believed me!)  This past summer the intermediate grades received upgrades and even more technology.  Of course the primary teachers immediately volunteered to take their hand me downs!  We went to several trainings and received some of our own technology.   It was/is a lot to learn but we are LOVING it!  We have been meeting on Wednesday afternoons to share ideas, ask questions, and just soak it all in.  We call it the technology support group:-).  Kim, Kathy and I are going to share how we use each of the Apple products with you soon.  We look forward to hearing your ideas as well!
