SWMAESP Sub D Meeting Nov. 30th

Hello SW MAESP Members!!!
Rather than creating another website/blog to share our information I decided to just add information to the blog that I already keep. This is a personal/professional blog that is not necessarily attached to my school in any way. It is a public blog and anyone can read it. If you are not familiar with blogging feel free to read other posts on this site and welcome to the world of blogging!

At our last meeting at the Library Center we decided to revive monthly meetings. Many principals mentioned that  it would be nice to get together to share/support each other. If you cannot attend this one we will schedule another meeting after the 1st of the year. We will try to alternate dates a little bit so that everyone can attend at least once.

You're Invited!!!

What: SW Sub D Meeting
When: Tuesday Nov. 30th 1:00-3:00
Where: Ebbet's Field on S Glenstone (Used to be Rivals next to old Circuit City)

I Finally "Get" the iPad

The past few days and nights I have been exploring the iPad a little more in depth. (Haven't been able to sleep due to cold and allergy medicine:)) Surely I could find a use for this other than as a consumption device. Seems I might have:)
Basically I just started carrying the thing around hoping it would come in handy.

-I discovered the ability to upload Pages files through iTunes so I could make and upload templates.
-A less tech experienced principal uses his all the time. (But I don't what apps etc. he uses.
-Stumbled across a blog of a classroom of 1st or 2nd grade students using a class set of ipads. Seriously, if 6-7 yr. olds can figure it out I should be able to.
-Chris Lehman posted an awesome post about using Google Forms to provide teachers with quality feedback and ongoing professional conversations.

There's way more to this story than this but I'm not a fan of really long posts. 
So, here I sit posting to my blog from my iPad. I guess I'm finally figuring it out. I'll keep you "posted."
