2007 Virginia Educational Technology Leadership Conference




Dave & I enjoyed meeting a number of the folks who attended our presentation this afternoon!  We hope that our excitement about tablet PCs and their usefulness in public education was apparent to you.  Likewise, SharePoint Services provides a remarkably intuitive and reliable structure for browser-based presentation and collaboration.  Please contact either of us via email if you have questions about these two technologies that continue to make a difference in what we do for the children of Bath County.
Bath County Public Schools is in year two of an exciting technology integration initiative using tablet computers and wireless LCD projectors to facilitate instruction, including wide use of Windows SharePoint Services’ Web 2.0 capabilities to easily share information between students and staff. An overview of the program and its initial success will be presented, followed by real-time demonstrations. Finally, this is seamless technology integration.
Even in little Bath County, Virginia, it is no longer possible for a few folks to create and manage the web presence for the school division.  Likewise, new communication and collaboration needs of organizations add complexity to document sharing and workflow management.  We must create and manage tools that end-users can manipulate to get their message out and to also effectively exchange information with others.
Bath County Public Schools provide quality educational services to 725 students in two K-7 elementary schools and one high school in the west central highlands of Virginia.  Sure,we're small, but we put to good use our 450+ computer network of classroom workstations, 12 mobile & fixed computer labs, tablet PCs with wireless LCD projectors, distance learning classrooms, low pupil/teacher ratio, experienced staff and good facilities.
