Technology in the Birmingham School District

I've taken some time to put this post together and it shows just a small overview of a report given to the board last May. Everyone was very impressed with how some of our teachers are using the technology resources to expand learning opportunities for our kids. If you have about 8 1/2 minutes to spare - I've packaged some of the highlights (but not all, the presentation was about 45 minutes).



I am convinced that what we are seeing is only tip of the creative iceberg, teachers will continue to expand the utilization of "21st Century" learning tools. These are types of initiatives we are supporting at BPS with board policy that will have a positive impact on students, teachers, and the wider community. The enthusiasm exhibited by these teachers reflects how effective application of new technology raises everyones energy for learning. Enjoy the video and please leave a comment.

Rob-
This video really captures well the highlights of the great work going on in our district. Thank you for putting it together for the world to see! What encourages me is that these practices have expanded greatly since last spring when this presentation was made. As you said, this is the tip of the iceberg. Imagine what we'll be seeing and doing a year from now!

Why can't all students and teachers share expanded technology use?
Stop Ignite until it is equitable.
