PTSC on Twitter!

Have you found PTSC on Twitter?  You can search for #ptsc to see recent posts or even follow me by searching for Stacey Schmidt or @DrStaceySchmidt.  I'm working to tweet regularly about lots of different topics--sports scores, photos of great things happening in our schools, interesting articles, things I am learning, and resources for parents and teachers.  Check it out!

New Phone Numbers for PTSC Buildings

We have new phone numbers that went live on Monday (July 22, 2013). We have a variety of numbers from which to choose and you can call any of the three numbers for the building and it will ring that building. Go to the PTSC website to find a chart of the list of numbers. You may pick a number that is a local call for you. We would like them to use the local phone number that is free for them to call as we have to pay for the toll free number and may eventually phase that out. New phones are now in place—and we are hoping for a smooth transition! We are making this transition to reduce our phone cost and also to improve the reliability of our phone system. By adding numbers, we are hoping that there will be a number that is local for you to call the building no matter where you live.

Technology In Education: A Brief Introduction by Ruben Puentedura

We are moving to a 1:1 environment incorporating the use of iPads at Boone Grove High School for the 2013-2014 school year.  I love how Ruben Puentedura outlines some of the basic ideas of moving to technology integration and the power that it harnesses.  Good stuff!
