I really appreciate the opportunity to come to this event. I am always looking for more ideas to use with my students. In the past, I have been in seminars that cater only to elementary teachers. I always check to make sure that the material will be relevant to me as a high school teacher, but it never works out that way. At my school when we do PD, it is always about the math department and what would work for them, because our curriculum person is math-minded. I love coming to an event at a university where all ages groups and content areas are welcomed and accepted. I would love to hear about other workshops that Avila is presenting. I also would love to know if anyone knows of other technology seminars or workshops where I can gain more tools for our current students. I am nervous about our district's move to one on one with our students and not having enough resources to really use the computers. I don't want to just use technology for technology sake, but rather to use technology to reach my students.
