busy day teaching

Today is a professional development day at hchs.  There are no students, and the faculty is busy in department meetings and taking technology professional development.

I started the day teaching naviance and then moved to blackboard. Later this afternoon, we are tackling smartboards.

It’s hard to describe how cool it is to watch seasoned teachers look at this stuff and say “Man, that is cool…how do you use this stuff?”

For me, part of getting games into the classroom is being part of the team.  Getting professional development done, helping faculty with other technology projects and supoporting facult in their use of technology is a great way to help build an affective relationship with technology.

It’s a good, busy, great day.
