At the public Board of Education meeting on Tuesday night (Sept. 13-for those of you who missed it) Pender Harbour Secondary principal Mark Heidebrecht gave the Board and audience a brief but informative overview on the use of technology by educators on the Sunshine Coast.
I was very impressed by the innovative use of technology by SD46 staff, and particularly surprised by the number of teachers using blogs to further communicate with children and families. I was only aware of a handful of educator blogs last year, but it seems more and more local educators are embracing technology to compliment their daily hard work in classrooms.
I would wager that most kids know which teachers have blogs, but I know that some parents aren’t yet aware that some of their children’s lesson plans, assignments, and resources are available on-line anytime!
I was interested in finding out how many educators are using these tools, and thought I might as well share the results while I’m at it. So, here is what I’ve found so far–I’m sure there are more. SD46 has a great new website and school websites are currently being updated to, so some teacher’s sites may not be up yet.
Please let me know what I’ve missed and I’ll update the list:
