EDE 325: Technology Integration in the Classroom, K-12 is an online course running this summer from June 27 – September 4th. Instructed by fellow educator Barb Vinal, the course will help educators best serve their students by learning how to use popular tech tools to help facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity. Exploration of technology applications (including Google apps) as well as the development of an online Personal Learning Network to include social media and bookmarking make the course relevant to individual educator needs and is designed to encourage continued learning beyond the course. Participants will develop a digital toolbox to help manage classroom lesson plans, schedules, and assessments and will enhance effective communication with students, administration and parents.
Barb has been teaching for over 30 years, and holds a Masters in Technology from Lesley University. This is the first course Barb is instructing for the Institute, and she is looking forward to working with students as they enhance their technology skills. Barb is currently an Instructional Technology Facilitator and Magnet School Coordinator in North Carolina, and she has presented sessions at multiple conferences on technology integration in the classroom.

Happy Dance: Project in Dance
An Art Teacher’s Story:
Lubec teachers and Washington Academy (WA) collaborated to dance for a surprise school wide assembly. The surprise was complete with gleeful clapping, hoots and wows from the student population. Their performance was followed by Gaetani leading the entire PK-8 school in 4 line dances. Connie Bagley is Lubec’s Art Teacher and gifted and talented Coordinator. She led Lubec’s staff in learning a line dance to “Happy Song” by Pharrell Williams. WA Dance “Guru” Gina Gaetani helped Bagley with choreography and had come to Lubec with her WA dance students to help teach the Lubec staff and then again to dance with them.
Bagley says the point of the Dance Project was to model creativity, arts integration and open mindset. Her idea to create Professional Development for teachers was for “Brains on Fire” a graduate class she is taking with Catherine Ring and the New England Institute for Teacher Education. Here is the public link https://prezi.com/dashboard/ to a Prezi she presented to teachers under her name Connie Harter-Bagley and is titled “Gifted and Talented Lubec”. Connie has a dozen Art related Prezis to share.
Thank you Connie for providing this blog post that provides food for thought for other educators.
