St. Mary Parish School opened its doors in 1916 and has been providing a great education for its students ever since. The parents of St. Mary's will be contributing to this blog which will update the community on Great Kids; Great Families. Visit our web site at www.faithwebsites.com/stmaryschool.
The ‘teachers-turned-students’ for the day, walked away from class more familiar with MacBook tools such as Safari (web browser), PhotoBooth and iPhoto (image maker and organizer), and GarageBand (music and podcast creation).
All of these tools promise to infuse future class lessons with valuable interaction, engaging multi-sensory impact, and wide ranging educational resources. By the end of the six-hour session our teachers proudly shared with the rest of the class their very first podcast!
Good luck to our teachers as they continue building their new skills. Completing this initial training is another step forward on our Technology Forward journey.
Thank you St. Mary teachers for your hard work. Thanks to the substitute teachers who supported this effort, to our principal Linda Joyner for arranging the opportunity and to volunteer Barb Bailey who single-handedly equipped the computer lab for training.
