Teachers Head to Class
Last week, 8 members of The Christ School faculty and staff attended the Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC) for professional development on education and technology skills and curriculum. Teachers explored over 500 exhibits, attended various seminars, and heard from keynote speakers on ways technology is being used today in classrooms along with ideas for the future. Especially interesting classes included how to make imovies and incorporate them in the classroom as educational tools; how to use (40+) new websites to inspire learning; and how to make DNA from knex models.
The conference, at the Orange County Convention Center, had attendees from across the United States and 40 countries. TCS faculty returned inspired and energized to share new ideas, websites, and iPad applications with their students. Thank you to our Annual Fund donors for helping to provide the resources that allowed The Christ School to offer professional development for our faculty and staff. Your gifts to the 2013-14 Annual Fund campaign are already at work! If you have not yet made your gift, please do so today. The campaign runs through June 30, 2014 – it’s not too late!
