This past Thursday my Help Desk colleagues and myself went to one of the largest educational technology classes in the region. It was epic and awe inspiring. I was able to meet many new people and be placed in the spotlight for a few minutes. People were wide eyed when they read Burlington on our badges. They were asking us questions related to the implementation of a 1:1 environment.
They also wanted to get our opinions on topics such as web filtering and the hindrance in the classroom. We met students from other tech teams in the area such as Reading and Groton-Dunstable public schools. They were awesome people and bonds like this will last a long time. We plan on having a tech team meet up later this year. Mrs. Scheffer and Mira Medhi both presented on Augmented Reality in the classroom. I helped them the with workshop part of the session and utilized Google Glass to film the attendees first time using Aurasma.
