Later today I have the honor and pleasure to join educators from all over in the opening of the Promethean Academy at the Promethean World Headquarters in Alpharetta, GA.
As it says on the Academy Gala page:
"The Academy seeks to empower those who represent Promethean as employees, business partners, and Learning Centers with the knowledge and skills needed to transform today's traditional classroom to the 21st Century Classroom."
Just from the talks I have had with the folks at Promethean it is going to be an amazing place to learn, explore and collaborate.
If you can't be there in person, they have set up a site with several video feeds so you can watch not only the Ribbon Cutting but some of the other events afterwards like a few Dual Pen competions with their newest ActivBoard products or a conversation about quality professional development. The festivities get underway at 2:30pm EST and you can grab a full schedule here.
Are you gonna be there? Drop me a note in the comments so I can be sure we connect. If you can't be there take some time today to check out the video feeds. It is gonna be a great time!
In this book, geared towards School and District Leaders, you'll learn about some of the most popular web tools used in schools but through a leadership lens. Understand how to be a more effective communicator and collaborator and boost productivity, at the same time understanding the need for school and district leaders be models of effective technology use.
Written with my good friend Tom Whitby, the book not only lays out the simple tools educators can use to get connected but why it's important to use these tools for professional learning, engaging classrooms and more! Filled with our own stories it's an easy read for any educator!
