I am the lead tech teacher at my Elementary site. we have recently moved into using Google Docs for collaborative grade level planning, during our Professional Learning Community (PLC) meetings. I would love to promote real classroom to classroom collaboration through We Collaborate. We are all getting new laptops and iPads, through grants, and this would be the perfect opportunity to help teachers get to the next level of tech usage. I can see using Blackboard to share lessons between classes, create shorter - well focused - staff meetings, and promote cross-grade planning.
This would be the perfect time for this application, as our teachers are going to be eager to learn all the new ways they can use their new iPads. Thank you for this opportunity.
