"Find the good. It's all around you. Find it, showcase it and you'll start believing in it."
Last week, on the eve of Connected Educator's Month, we held our first ever Technology Integration Showcase at the Thomas O'Brien Academy of Science and Technology. The event consisted of more than 15 Albany teachers showcasing the way they use various pieces of technology to support learning and enhance professional practice. Attendees were able to get expert advice from their colleagues and take part in several hands-on learning experiences. The event was held one week prior to the deadline for the district hardware grants so that applicants could see, asks questions about, and interact with the very things they're applying for.
