Whenever I am working with teachers and/or students, I always try to give them "tips and tricks" when using a certain pieces of software or hardware. In doing so, I'm hoping to show that digital tools are easy to use and can save them time when teaching or learning. As a tech integrationist, I find people are reluctant to use technology because they either don't know how or have had frustrating experiences with it. If I can show them shortcuts or easier ways to use it, I find the "lightbulbs" will start lighting up.
Cindimay, here in Yavapai County at our monthly tech academy, after showing the teachers how to use a new tool or site, I usually have a problem for them to solve that allows them to actually use the tool while we are there. This allows for good modeling and really lets the teachers have a "hands on" approach to what we have studied. In the Collaboration and Communication training, I have the teachers plan a field trip or other activity without physically talking to one another. They can text, use a wiki or Google Docs or any other platform available, but they CANNOT talk to one another. It really is an eye opener to many of them.
By the way, I hear the peach cobbler in Georgia is FANTASTIC this time of year. It's too bad your not there NOW to try some of the delicious desert! LOL
