We just spent two amazing days with the staff and students from Epping West Public school. I don't think I've ever experienced such a warm welcome! As part of the sessions the first goal was to create a buzz around using technology. The staff meeting on the first day was geared towards giving teachers the confidence to get the ball rolling. We had a lot of laughs with the art gallery exercise and some very creative entries into the modern masterpiece competition.
For all the fun, the feedback that teachers were feeling excited about using the devices with their students was awesome. Sitting down with the technology teachers to create a road map for success gave focus and direction to their journey, and a chance for them to express concerns and potential road blocks. This is a critical piece of the puzzle and shouldn't be overlooked. By the end of the two days there was a definite buzz around technology. The students we worked with were incredibly creative and I was so impressed with the level of the work they produced. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Keep the ball rolling!
