Welcome Back!

There are a lot of big changes in Sequoia Union High School District this school year.  Our district is fully adopting Google Apps for Education, which means our email and calendar clients have changed.  And we (and our students) now have access to some pretty amazing Google tools. We are also adopting a new grade book and communication management system, School Loop.  And don't forget, we will be continuing our work on integrating the Common Core State Standards into our curriculum, and begin to integrate the technology pieces of those standards.

Our world is changing rapidly.  Our students are growing up in an age where there are constant new advancements in technology.  We need to prepare them for this world by integrating technology into our classrooms and curriculum.

In order to feel comfortable guiding our students as they use technology to enhance their learning, we will need some training and support.  Each week I will post a tech tip, tool, or an example of a classroom use of technology.  I will also try to highlight some of the amazing things our innovative and dedicated educators in this district are doing with their students.  If you have a tech tip or lesson to share, please let me know.  I would love for you to contribute to this blog.
