As educators, we all know the importance of successfully integrating collaboration, creation, and critical thinking into the educational environment. We also have that little component ~ technology ~ that is changing the dynamics of teaching and learning. The administrators in SW Michigan are taking the lead in creating partnerships with KRESA, Southwest MiTech and REMC 12W that will allow their teachers to take full advantage of technology coaching and modeling. These partnerships are growing which results in Keith, Jeremie and I being stretched to the max. For this I am extremely excited! Just last week we were able to offer Lorri Batsie a position with our team. Lorri was a middle school teacher in Washington, Missouri. You will be hearing a lot more about her as time goes by but in the mean time check out her twitter @lbatsie8. Please help me welcome Lorri to our team! p.s. Her husband (Michael Batsie) will be joining Galesburg-August High School Science team.
