New Year, New Adventures

A Principal's Reflections

The conference will be held on Saturday October 2, 2010.

Social Media in Education

A Principal's Reflections

Best of all was the fact that this service was free and stakeholders could receive information on school events, news, student accomplishments, and innovations in the classroom on their mobile devices. After this meeting in late March of 2010, I created a Facebook page for New Milford High School. Since society as a whole is actively using social media in their homes and through their mobile devices, it only makes sense now to connect with my community through these means.

Following Through

A Principal's Reflections

These will be added to the mobile iPod learning lab that currently houses 28 nanos. - A few posts ago I wrote about a stimulating meeting that I had with members of student government at my school ( Winds of Change: Student Style 3/10/10 ). During the meeting I challenged them to be active in the change process and provide ideas on how to make NMHS a better place academically and socially. On their own, the students came up with fantastic ideas in both areas.

A Level Playing Field.

The Web20Classroom

There were plenty of computer labs and mobile carts. But would investing in mobile carts and a staff member be a better option. Access. Equity. When I hear educators talk about access and equity my mind immediately thinks of Internet access.
