Friendswood ISD administrators attend digital learning age symposium
Four administrators from the Friendswood ISD recently completed the digital learning age symposium held in Austin.
Digital education specialist and international speaker Alan November led the three-day leader/teacher seminar in cooperation with the Texas Association of School Administrators.
Attendees were Barry Clifford, assistant principal of Cline Elementary School; Tonia Meadows, executive director of technology; Tammy Pipkin, Friendswood Junior High coordinator of student success; and Rob Weis, FHS assistant principal.
The symposium attendees collaborated on projects that focused on aligning technologies to standards, building staff capacity, improving communication among the faculty, supporting pioneering educators, globalizing the curriculum, increasing participation of parents and community and authentic and rigorous problem solving.
"Due to many factors, teachers professional growth is often limited in both scope and frequency," Clifford said in a press release. "Through technology, however, teachers can develop their own personal learning network and collaborate with others from around the United States in real time or at any time that fits their schedules. Using tools such as Twitter and Diigo, Cline educators are sharing ideas, methodologies, strategies, newly created apps, participating in book studies and more."
