While we only had a chance to meet about 60% of the teachers on campus, the conversations that we had were meaningful and worthwhile. Chats about how to use Doceri, when we can be expecting to mirror our iPads (it's coming... be on the lookout for some news in the near future), how to find apps, and so much more. It is clear that Mr. Wilborn has created a positive culture that encourages the integration of new tools on his campus.
In Mrs. Lawless' class, we had the chance to work with her on getting her iTunes music onto her desktop for a class presentation. She was so happy that we might just get a request to come back and hang out with her some more. Mr. Hunter is already a rockstar with the tech in his classroom and it was clear when I walked in his room to see an iPad, laptop, and two computer screens all being used to plan the next day's lesson. Like many other teachers at OHS, he is seeing the parallels of Doceri with the iPad and the InterWrite Pads with the desktop. This should be a seamless transition as we get more comfortable with the iPad in our hands.
The win of the day, at least in the reaction, had to be Ms. Correa. Maybe it's something as small as being able to use your computer, but teachers get excited when things work. After commenting about how she couldn't use her new computer to show her lessons, we worked some magic and got it all set up. Let's just say that it's a good thing there was room to do "the happy dance".
