I recently found some good websites through the different blogs that I follow.  I will add some of them to the Jefferson Edline page for easier access.  Since I really don't type up newsletters anymore, I thought I would send this out in an email after posting it on my blog.  Enjoy....

Technology Use in Schools

I am just now getting to the summer issue of THE Journal.  I found an interesting article about technology use in the classroom.  Some studies are showing that teachers and students are not using the resources that are available to them.  So...what is it like at your school?  Are teachers using the technology that they have in their classrooms?  Are they using it in meaningful and engaging ways?  Are students using technology in the classrooms?  All these questions are very relevant since we are putting tons and tons of money into purchasing new tools all the time.  Follow the link to read the article and let me know what you think.
