First day of Summer. Hope you are all relaxing and rejuvenating. I am working and participating in an online books study, Guided Math by Laney Sammons. I am learning some really good stuff.
On the "working" side. The Tech crew has been in every classroom in the district, and we are a bit ahead of schedule in some areas and a few days behind in others. Most of our laptops for the mobile labs have arrived. The bulk of our new computers will arrive on Monday.
All of the labs have been dismantled. Almost all of the requested
mini-labs are in place (except some 4th, 5th, and 6th grade mini-labs). We have removed all of the teacher computers at the High School, and have installed their new computers.We have removed most of the teacher computers at the Middle School (except for those being used for Summer School).We will begin replacing those next week. HMK and Offices will follow.
Our new computers are pretty amazing. They are an all-in-one model from Dell which means you get a screen - NO TOWER - that's it! If you requested a USB keyboard and mouse, we had to order them separately, so what you will see is a wireless keyboard and mouse until the others come in. (We will then come around and trade them). We have already installed the batteries but you need to turn the switches on for them to work.We will probably leave a paper with explanations on how to get your doc cam & projector going, as soon as we get to that point.
