Best Practices in Media and Technology
We have taken ideas that teachers across our district have implemented in their classroom and are sharing them with everyone.  We have 4 main sections right now.  PBL Units, Computer Skills Lesson Ideas, Integrating Technology in your Classroom and Featured Classroom Websites.  There is not a tremendous amount there right now but enough to get you started.  We plan to continue gathering teacher's ideas and posting them. This will be an ongoing thing so we can continue building a big library of resources for you so please keep visiting.
