My Internal Struggle Over a Tech Academy
At the beginning of the school year, my staff development coordinator and I discussed the idea of having a summer tech academy for teachers. Now that it's March, we're trying to make arrangements so this can happen. Do we call it a Tech Academy? I like the way it sounds, but I feel like we are constantly separating technology from curriculum content. Is it okay to address technology as a stand alone? If so, how do we get teachers to see that tech is not an add-on? I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic.
