AMSTI begins today!

I should be waking up my kids and getting them ready for daycare, but I want to enjoy a few more minutes of peace and quiet before the whining begins. We haven't gotten up this early all summer, but today is a special day...AMSTI Summer Institute begins today! This is my fourth year as a trainer and my fifth year to participate. It's almost like the excitement I feel on the first day of school! I will have another group of teachers this year, and I know that I will enjoy them as much as I have all my other groups! I am planning to talk to them about blogging, wikis, and other 21st Century tools later in the week. I am hoping to get them to participate in my wiki. It's going to be a fun two weeks, and I am ready to begin!

The job posting for technology coach went up Friday. The official title is "Technology Integration Specialist." They are only hiring one this year and maybe adding another one (or two) later. I thought about waiting until later to apply (this job is so much bigger than one person), but I decided to go for it this year. The job description was rather interesting. It is going to be re-posted Monday, but I was able to grab a copy of the original. I was surprised to see that I was expected to be familiar with the Nova Scotia Public Schools Program curricula, the Information Economy Initiative, and the Vision For the Integration of Information Technologies document. I will research these on the Internet, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them disappear from the job description and see them replaced with documents related to the Alabama Course of Study!

Quiet time is over...time to rouse the children! It's going to be a wonderful day!
