Here is what one teacher said about time in a NCCAT technology seminar ...

"As a novice with some aspects of technology, I feel so much more equipped with both knowledge and tools to help my students, parents, faculty, and community interface with student learning through technology".
Fred Feely, Parkwood Elementary, Durham, NC

November 18 - 21, 2014
Cullowhee Campus

New technologies and related initiatives have been arriving in the classroom with alarming frequency: Chrome books, iPads, Interactive white boards, web 2.0 and 3.0 tools, student response systems, and countless apps. In an effort to remain current, many teachers may find themselves in a classic tail-wags-dog scenario; their curriculum is driven by the technology, when it is the technology that should support the curriculum. During this program, teachers will receive instruction in how to use digital tools to support and enhance their reading, writing, speaking, and listening instruction.

13806: Using Digital Tools to Engage Literacy and Improve School Communications
December 9 - 12, 2014, Cullowhee Campus

One of the most striking realities relating to the nuts-and-bolts operation of schools is that communication processes can always be improved. Managing tasks, coordinating volunteers, getting parent feedback, disseminating information - these and other challenges face teachers, teams, administrators, and parent groups on a regular basis. Learn about free technological resources that can be leveraged to improve communication, engage teachers, engage students, engage parents, and raise money, friends, and interest for needs that fall outside of regular funding sources. Administrators and school teams are invited to apply for this program.
