Great Training Going on Around the District

I want to thank the science department at Southwest Edgecombe and selected staff members at Martin Middle for inviting me to come provide training for them this week. Southwest's science teachers have embraced the concept of a blended online and face-to-face class, helping to prepare students for higher education. They are excitedly using the Learning Management System tool called Schoology with their students. From what I'm hearing from other schools in the district, [shout out to my friends at Edgecombe Early College High School] students are loving this new tool. At EECHS, the science teacher just presented this tool to her colleagues, too! Must be something in science teachers! They like to be cutting edge! Also, the staff at Martin Middle is preparing to roll out the new email service we have contracted for students, called Gaggle. I enjoyed working with a large group of their teachers yesterday afternoon as they learned how to use this new tool. It won't be long before all students in the district have access to this safe emailing, blogging, discussion board, online course management system! We're making things happen here in Edgecombe County! I'm proud to be a part of it!
