Well join the Tech Committee or come on by to a meeting.  All are welcome.  Here's the info: 
  • Our Goals - This year the committee will be working on policies - Acceptable Use, One-to-One and Bring Your Own Device.  However, we will be focusing a good portion of our meeting time on disseminating technology information regarding new technologies, how to's, best practices etc; all in relation to the classroom.  This time will be spent learning in a supportive and collaborative environment from the tech team and more importantly from other teachers who are already effectively using the technology in the classroom.
  • When/Where - The Tech Committee meets monthly (starting in October) on Wednesday afternoons between 3:30 and 5:00PM.  That schedule will be confirmed when the core committee is assembled.  We usually make adjustments to the schedule to occasionally provide a meeting on another day for those who can't make Wednesdays. 
  • Who - The Technology Committee needs representation at all grade levels and disciplines.  We require at least one teacher per school and from Special Education and Early Ed but we prefer two or three people.  This year we are going to ask that you try to get a substitute from your school if you are unable to attend.  Also, new this year, the Tech Committee is open to guests (teachers, paras, staff) who are interested in attending a meeting in order to learn or teach something about technology but can not regularly attend. 
  • FYI - The Tech Committee Schedule will be posted on the RNESU Technology Portal.  Meeting agendas will be posted on the portal at least one week in advance for those who are interested in visiting.
