Workshop Data and Summary

While the purpose of my workshop was to bring focus back to
technology applications that are not fully taken advantage of, it was obvious
that I had more material to cover than I had allotted time. This fact was also
noted in my presenter evaluation as needing improvement regarding my use
of time and the amount of information discussed adequately fitting the time
frame. However, from the materials presented, it is important to note that
everyone felt the workshop was beneficial and that they gained knowledge
regarding most of the applications; aspects of those applications which they
had not previously been aware of or used. When creating the workshop
evaluation, I required e-mail addresses of all responders so that I could
complete a one on one follow-up and assist with applying the new tools in
the classroom. The handouts, which many noted as providing efficient
information and guidelines for being successful with the technology
applications, will also be available for all staff, as well as, the website
created. Due to our school system deciding to move over to a new website
host, I created a Weebly page for this assignment. This site will become a
source of information to use in my current position as media specialist for
Fitzgerald High School and to share with my teachers and improve my
presence as a technology coach and innovator for the school! Further work
will be done to include web 2.0 tools and to work towards the goals of my
final capstone.
