I would like to start by thanking the entire BPS community for their enthusiasm and support during the three day PD conference at Burlington High School. During these three days I noticed an overwhelming desire amongst the BPS community to learn, share, and try something new. This is exactly what the organizers had in mind when we started scheduling the first session many months ago. While we understand the new applications and procedures can seem overwhelming, we know that the BPS teachers and staff will be working hard to make our community a trailblazer for innovation in education. Throughout this time, we want you to feel supported no matter how small or simple the issue may seem.
The next few weeks will be exciting and challenging for all of us. The BPS Education Technology team wants to make sure you feel supported throughout these first few weeks and beyond. I am posting my schedule as a public Google Calender under the EdTech Team calendars tab on the website. This calendar is to schedule my time in your classroom to work together on a project or introduce an application. If you want to schedule time during the help desk hours, myself or one of the EdTech student crew members may be working with you. My after school hours are the best time to work on a project or unit that requires tech integration. If you need troubleshooting help in class you can call me at 617-286-4939 and if you need assistance with something that does not require immediate attention, you can submit it below in the Google form.
If you would like to schedule time with me or the help desk students, you can click here and make an appointment. Once accepted, this appointment will be posted on your Google Calendar for reference. Please see this video if you are new to using Google appointments.
Please schedule as much time as you need and know that we are here for your support. If you cannot find a time that works for you, send me an event invite through your Google Calendar and I will respond as soon as possible. You can also send an email.
The BPS EdTech team looks forward to working with all of you in this effort and supporting all of your academic technology needs.
