    Have you ever wondered what school technology specialists and library media educational technology specialists do on their Friday trainings?
    Heidi Meenen, one of our Educational Technology team leaders, gives some insights into our department’s Friday professional learning in the video above.
    In this meeting, technology specialists learned about a new technology tool, the Explore feature in Google Sheets,
    and then had the opportunity to engage in a lesson that integrates that tool into learning. They experience first-hand how the lesson works,
    then take it back to their schools to share with students through co-teaching opportunities, modifying when necessary to meet specific classroom needs.
    Additionally, technology and library media specialists spend time at Friday meetings in collaborative groups creating original lesson plans.
    Each month they focus on one or two specific topics or tools from our Technology Integration Progress menu.
    The goal is to create and amass a library of lesson plans aligned to specific core standards that integrate innovative technology
    use and 21st century learning practices such as those described in the ISTE Learning Standards.
    Technology and library specialists share what they create with each other and bring these lessons back to teachers and students at their schools.
    You can see snapshots of some of these shared lessons in action in classrooms by browsing our @EdTechGSD Twitter Feed.
    As time passes, selections from these shared lessons and resources may also be shared publicly on our Technology Integration Progress Resource Pages.

    Computer Science Week begins this week and students around the globe will be participating in an Hour of Code during the week.
    What is the Hour of Code?
    The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. Check out the tutorials and activities. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.
    When is the Hour of Code?
    The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2017 Computer Science Education Week will be December 4-10, but you can host an Hour of Code all year round. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
    Why computer science?
    Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. See more stats here.
