Additional discussion:
  • Adding students to Inside ISB - this is desperately needed in the ES where we create class blogs with all students as part of one blog. Minutes: Students can have usernames on WPMU, but they need e-mail addresses (PantherNet e-mails are currently not working).
  • How are we meshing the AASL & ISTE NETS standards? Who is doing what? Do we want to adopt the ISTE NETS for Teachers? If so, how? Goal for the year: adopting & combining these two sets of standards. Minutes: Decision has been made: we will not merge the two standards, we will adopt both.

Parking Lot – Items on our plate for future meeting

  • Budgeting - who is in charge, how do we purchase, what does the budget look like for next year?
  • CoETaIL courses - is the purpose to train people to be tech teachers? Questions are arising.

Meeting Minutes:

  • Decisions was made not to combine the NETs and AASL Standards but instead keep them separate.
  • Jeff, Chad, and Dennis will contact those that have been chosen for the Tech Squad to meet Wed. Feb. 4th 2-3 o'clock in Ed Tech
  • Chad will talk to Ugo and Bill about joining us for a future meeting about our place in the larger school vision as a follow up to our presentation to the leadership team.
