1. Plan Duration
This plan guides the use of education technology from July 1, 20082011 through June 30,
20112014.

2. Stakeholders
This plan was developed with input from site administrators, District Cabinet, Site
Technology Liaisons from each school, Adult Literacy providers, the Instructional
Technology Coordinator, Assistant Director of Technology and the Director of
Technology. Stakeholders from the community included a Language/Technology
Coordinator from the Santa Cruz COE and several businesses that support the district in
collaborative and partner relationships.

to the Director of Technology. Those providing feedback on plan drafts included
improvements and suggestions that were included in the final draft.

CURRICULUM COMPONENT

3a. Current Access to Technology
Teachers and students can access computers during school in classrooms, libraries,                  Formatted: Right: 0", Line spacing: single
and labs, and after school at the high and middle schools through the Extended
Learning Programs. Many teachers have access to laptops and can use them at any
time to research and, develop curriculum, and deliver content. At some sites, with a
higher student to computer ratio, technology is concentrated in the library media labs
where research and extended learning opportunities beyond regular class-time is critical
for student success. Students and parents also have access to three Community
Technology Centers after school that, although not directly funded by the district, .               Comment [hg4]: Do we still have these
These labs allows students to extend learning after school through an agreement with
the district. The current distribution of computers is provided below, using data taken

  3b. Current Use of Hardware and Software
  Teachers and librarians use technology in a variety of ways to support instruction. The
  vast majority use technology to create materials for instruction, communicate with
  colleagues and research topics to plan for lesson delivery. Classroom uses ranges from
  extensive use of word processing and desktop publishing applications to reading
  comprehension support and multimedia/Internet project based activities. Research
  skills are strongly supported by library staff. The last two years, theIn the past, the
  district has invested heavily in intervention software to support the needs of our student
  population. In the last two years, several school sites have received grant money which
  was used to purchase over 200 interactive whiteboards, laptops for classroom teachers,
  and classroom computers. The high schools and some elementary and middle schools
  have embraced digital imaging and video editing applications; most such uses are in
  specialized programs or specific technology classes. Overall frequency of use varies
  greatly among school sites and from classroom to classroom. There areHalf of the

Students are assigned work incorporating technology based on teacher experience,
instructional requirements and the level of access at the site. Teachers use technology
in instruction mostly for word processing, reinforcement/practice, research and creating
reports or projects. Fully one third quarter of teachers never use technology in student
assignments, while and most teachers do not use technology for problem solving,
presenting/analyzing data, or to correspond with experts or other students. 798 82
teachers provided the following data using EdTechProfile, mostly between January and
March, 20072009.

PVUSD’s Local Education Agency Plan (LEAP) identifies language arts and math as
primary areas of academic development, especially addressing English Language
Learners, while moving all students to proficient level in language arts, math, science
and social studies. As a focus for this three-year plan, those uses of instructional
technology which best support students becoming proficient in the areas of reading,
writing and mathematics, especially concerning English Language Learners, will be
given priority.

As teachers and administrators continue to clearly align teaching content to the
California Academic Content Standards, this plan will concentrate on using technology
to increase student achievement in language arts and math, focusing on the effective
use of instructional materials in a systematically planned instructional schedule. The
integration model focuses technology use at the classroom level, using electronic tools
to integrate academic exercises into the overall curricular framework (Sandholtz,
Ringstaff & Dwyer, 1997). Students in upper grades will use technology to collect
information in multiple formats, and then organize, link and construct ideas to be
incorporated into projects and reports that improve communication of ideas and
concepts (Dwyer, 1992), as well as to support basic skills development (Kulik & Kulik,
1987). In all grades, Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) aligned to content standards,
district writing programs and the adopted textbook series will supplement an
instructional program that supports basic academic skill development (Butzin, 2000,
Kulik & Kulik, 1987 and Sivin-Kachala & Bialo, 2000).

The following goals, objectives, benchmarks, monitoring and implementation activities
support PVUSD plans and goals for academic achievement.

4a. Most staff members have home computers and use them for email, Internet
research, and word processing. All staff haves a free, district provided email account for
educational purposes. Some teachers integrate technology into instructional practice,
mostly incorporating word processing, educational games and Internet resources.
Instructional software is being used regularly by some teachers, including,
SuccessMaker, Accelerated Reading, Rosetta Stone, My Access, NetTrekker and
DiscoveryStreaming, while others use content specific software, like Adobe Premiere,
Inspiration, Kidspiration, Smart Notebook and more. For a complete list, of available
software, please refer to page 28.

their credential. On average, teachers express mid-intermediate skills in creating
technology enhanced lessons aligned with adopted curriculum, and just barely feel
intermediately skilled skills in communicating with a variety of media and using
technology to enhance
information literacy and
problem solving skills. All other
areas of actually using
technology in classroom
instruction fall under the
introductory skills area.

Professional development is critical to the improvement of student learning and to the
integration of technology into curriculum, (Schacter, 1999 and Sivin-Kachala & Bialo,
2000). The professional development plan will leverage and partner with a variety of
existing networks and district curriculum providers as much as possible to provide long-
term professional development that is related to student learning goals, (Wetzel, et.al.,
2002).The professional development model used by PVUSD includes: 1) Long term,
structured opportunities; 2) Just in time support, and; 3) The development of site based
learning communities, (Fernandez, et al., 2001; Loucks-Horsley, 1998; Murphy & Lick,
2001; Strudler, 1994; Wetzel, et.al., 2002) as well as online communities of practice,
(Sherry, Billig, Tavelin and Gibson, 2000)

Long term, structured professional development opportunities will be provided using
several resources.
    The District Curriculum Department, with representatives from all sites and
      departments, including the Director of Technology and the Instructional
      Technology Coordinator, is responsible for District-wide coordination of staff
      development. Coaching for technology integration will be structured to follow an
      Umbrella Coaching Model, so that staff receives consistent messages about
      instructional approaches across curricular areas. Appropriate technology tools
      will be integrated into these training, coaching, and mentoring efforts. Content
      area coaches will receive technology integration training, and coaching and
      support staff will participate as appropriate. The Instructional Technology
      Coordinator and Director of Technology will collaborate in planning and
      professional development delivery with the coaching and professional
      development offered by ELD site leaders, English language specialists, math
      coaches, Reading First, Title I, and site-based literacy coaches, writing coaches,
      migrant teachers, Resource teachers, Extended Learning Program coaches, site-
      based staff development coordinators and site administrators.
    AB430, the Principal Instructional Leadership Training, Module 1, called
      Leadership and Support of Student Instructional Programs, in language arts and
      mathematics. This 40-hour program includes an additional 40-hour practicum
      that will include technology integration of textbook adopted software professional
      development.
    District math and language arts teachers are encouraged to participate in
      reading/language arts professional development. These 40-hour institutes also
      require 80 hours practicum, which can include technology integration of textbook
      adopted software professional development.
    Student Writing Enhanced by Educational Technology (SWEET), an Enhancing
      Education Through Technology (EETT) Competitive program, has provided
      sustained professional development to five middle schools from 2006 to
      20082011, with a second grant serving three north district schools, one middle

Pajaro Valley Unified School District Technology Plan – 20082011-20112014                  37
       and two elementary, from 2007-2009. The programs collaborate with writing
       coaches to provide workshops, teaching resources and coaching support.
      Another EETT grant starting in January 2011 will provide secondary schools with
       continued Data Team training to strengthen their ability to focus on student
       achievement.Both programs are on track to qualify for a third year of support,
       with continued coaching and resource support, during which time involved sites
       and district representatives will evaluate the program success and address
       sustainability as participants and administrators plan for continued support.
      Technology Integration Mini Grants are offered throughout the year. Teacher
       teams of two propose a project with a common standards based curricular need
       in their classrooms. They work together to write a project based proposal that
       explains how they will use technology to meet the identified need in their
       classroom. All Projects have an ELD component and incorporate academic
       language. Six project proposals are funded each year, to be expanded if funds
       are available. The six pairs that are selected will receive various hardware and
       software supplies to support their project. Selected projects are equally
       dispersed across the diverse district, with two projects minimum selected in each
       of the three zones.

Just in time support will be provided using site Technology Liaisons and program
coaches supported by the district and funded programs (listed above). Each site has an
identified Technology Liaison, who participates in the District Technology Leadership
Liaison Team meetings fourfive times a year with other Tech Liaisons, the Instructional
Technology Coordinator, Assistant Director of Technology, Director of Technology,
Tech Department leadership, site administrator representatives, librarians, and                Comment [hg12]: ?
representatives from district professional development providers, for centralized
professional development in learning strategies to support site teachers. They then are
responsible to provide teachers with resources and instructional strategy instruction and
just in time support. Resources provided through CTAP 5REGION 5, Santa Cruz COE
and the district will be disseminated with models of proven integration strategies and
focus on integrating resources into instruction. Resources provided for just in time
learning include resources within the Ed1Stop Portal provided as a consortium
agreement with Santa Cruz COE, new Web 2.0 communication/collaboration tools, and              Comment [hg13]: Anying to change update?
others that the Curriculum Department and the Technology Department/Liaisons identify
as valuable. This provides opportunities for individualized learning at the sites, available
at any time, and provides resources to our schools in a reliable, coordinated way,
(Cradler & Cradler, 1995).

Teacher/administrator learning communities are beinghave been established at our
school sites. At monthly meetings, staff will analyze data, share teaching strategies, and
identify areas of technology skills, integration strategies, data driven assessment and
management issues of need. The administration and site Tech Liaisons will
communicate staff needs to the Curriculum Department and Instructional Technology
Coordinator in order to plan to offer the needed professional development locally, online
via district and CTAP 5REGION 5 tools, or by leveraging related activities occurring
through the county office of education if similar offerings are scheduled. Together, the


Pajaro Valley Unified School District Technology Plan – 20082011-20112014               38
staff will decide the topics revolving on the needs and uses of educational technology in
the classrooms and related professional development needed, (Cradler & Cradler,
1995).

Teachers will have opportunities to attend regional conferences, such as the California
League of Middle/High Schools Technology Conference in Monterey, The California
Computer Using Educators Conference, and the Asilomar Math and Reading
Conferences. These regionally offered opportunities provided through professional
associations serve to expose staff to new ways of thinking and to provide ideas for
curricular improvement, (Becker & Riel, 2000).

The following goals, objectives, benchmarks, monitoring process and activities focus on
building teaching skills that support district student learning objectives.

  The district supports learning resources across all sites, and each site can purchase
  software that supports local site goals. Both online and district-wide licensed software are
  supported with a mixture of district and site funding. Even though the following resources
  are available, some teachers use a wide variety of resources, some selectively use or are
  not aware of how to use, while some do not use technology at all. Please refer to usage

fiber topology thru a Customized Switched Metro Ethernet system (CSME) using AT&T as
service provider. The CSME connects the district office via a 1GB fiber connection to the
Santa Cruz County Office of Education, which serves as ISP and drops county educational
networks into the local node of the K12 High Speed Network. The District maintains multiple
local area networks (LANs) located at school sites and administration centers. The LANs are
of a sophisticated multi-segment, multi-protocol switch-based design and are both scalable
and high performance. These systems connect over 135 servers and over 5,500 clients
computers throughout the District, allowing staff and students the access to information
required to support a sophisticated and impressive technology-infused curriculum program.
The district continues to look at methods to improve the network speed and efficiency, but
current speeds and connections are sufficient for the life of this plan, with a few exceptions.

The high-speed connections to each site are fully capable of being increased as need is
identified.

The district has invested heavily in wireless connectivity to support ubiquitous computing at
sites. 28 of 34 sites support wireless, with 25 of those sites providing wireless networking
services to administrators, teachers and students. Three provide wireless only to
administrators and teachers.

Technical support has improved. The district employs an Assistant Director, Network
Engineer, 15 support technicians, three application analysts, and one communications
technician. Sites pay salaries and benefits for their own support technicians, while the
district coordinates their efforts and pays salaries and benefits for district network support
personnel and application analysts. The district goal is to have one support tech per three
elementary schools, one support tech per two middle schools, and one support tech per
each high school.

Seven sites report hardware fixes take between two hours and the end of the day, 14 from
two days to a week, for seven sites repairs take between a week and a month, and four
sites report repairs take a month or
more. Site technical support is
provided through two basic
options. 24 sites fund partial to up
to 1.75 FTE technical support,
while eight sites report 0 FTE
support, and thus rely completely
on district technicians. Four sites
involve students in technical
support through a class offered for
credit. The district coordinates and

New help ticket system/kbox
Phone Help desk
In the fall of 2010, Technology Services implemented a new help ticket system for district
staff to submit help requests. The new system integrates with active directory and allow for
online collaboration tools by technicians working on complex technical problems. This
provides documentation of the process resolving each help ticket and places it in a software
library.

In the Winter of 2011 the new Phone Help desk will be available 5 days a week from 8:00-
4:30 with technicians supporting the district with remote management tools allowing them to
solve problems remotely at every site. This is a CISCO VoIP call center that will allow the
district to customize the call center to the specific needs of the school sites.

Technology            Summary
Hardware              Sites will need to replace aging computers, with attention given to sites with
                      higher student to computer ratios. Some sites with greater student to computer
                      ratios have migrated to a library/research centercomputer lab model instead of a
                      classroom centered model. Sites will need to focus on improving library lab
                      access to resources and leveraging resources to bring computing into daily
                      classroom activities.

                      Continue to centralize and virtualize site servers to the district office
                      Peripherals, like data LCD projectors, interactive white boards, cameras,
                      printers, classroom response systems, etc. are needed to address interactivity in
                      classroom instruction and address collaborative and multi-modal learning
                      situations and projects (especially for English Language population).
                      Sites are looking at video casting equipment to address delivery of locally
                      produced (student and teacher) and locally served video and audio resources.
                      These are invaluable for English Language acquisition.
                      Servers needed for new student information systems, digital lockers, etc. will be
                      needed for implementation of some network provided services, although the
                      option to have vendors host products will be considered when costs and
                      maintenance can be reduced.

Electronic and     Summary
Learning Resources Online digital resources are increasing the opportunities to directly address
                   learning and collaboration opportunities for students and teachers, and include
                   video and audio streams, teaching and learning resources, connecting via video
                   to experts, authors, etc. for classroom presentations and discussions, online
                   mentoring, and Web 2.0 communication and collaboration tools. Also, software
                   supporting library management and research, language arts, language
                   acquisition and mathematics (as well as science, foreign language, social
                   studies and other content areas) will be more oriented to online delivery as the
                   model can be constantly updated, requires little local maintenance, and is the
                   most cost effective.
                   Storage of student and teacher work is also necessary, and although it requires
                   a hardware solution if housed locally, there are online alternatives to consider
                   served by the vendor.

                   increased as need arises. and a few smaller sites that currently have DSL
                   connections which will need to increase speeds with T1 in order to deliver
                   instructional resources and allow clear business/student data to flow
                   uninterrupted.The goal is for all PVUSD facilities to be connected via the district
                   standard.
                   The district will also continue to upgrade to a voice over internet protocol (VOIP)
                   phone system to increase capabilities and manage costs.
                   Wireless connectivity at all sites need to be completed, with services provided to

Physical Plant        Summary
Modifications         Sites have all been recently modernized or built. Electrical systems are
                      adequate to support needed improvements over the life of this plan.

Technical Support     Summary
                      Currently, eight sites report 0 FTE tech support, with four sites reporting repairs
                      take a month or more. The goal for the district is to provide tech support
                      personnel such that one technician supports 3 elementary schools, one
                      technician supports 2 middle schools, and each high school has a dedicated
                      support person. Also, the average repair time should be reduced to the two to
                      five day range. The district also supports application analysts to support student
                      information systems and district databases. Technical support response time for
                      some sites needs improving.
                      The district help ticket system is currently adequate, but as improvements can
                      be made, the technology department will consider implementation as need and
                      technical improvements warrant it.

                      List
                         Encourage all sites to fund tech support meeting or exceeding district goals;
                         Reduce down time for hardware fixes to two to five days on average;
                         Ensure desktop security is maximized and required for all new purchases.

 5d. Monitoring
 Each goal/objective has a clear monitoring process including roles and responsibilities. Please refer to each area for specifics.
 The District Technology Leadership Team will provide overall monitoring of the plan, made up of site tech liaisons, Tech
 Department leadership, site administrator representatives, librarians, and representatives from district professional
 development providers, who meet five times a year with the Director of Technology. Here, plan implementation will be
 addressed and modifications be suggested.




  Pajaro Valley Unified School District Technology Plan – 20082011-20112014             64
  Funding and Budget
  6a. Established and Potential Funding Sources
  Sources of funding include general funds, Title funds, Program Assistance (PI) funding,
  Enhancing Education Through Technology Competitive and Formula funds, California K-12
  Educational Technology Voucher Program, CalREN discounts, E-Rate discounts, and
  educational technology partnerships, such as the Extended Learning, CBET (Community
  Based English Tutoring) Labs, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, etc. Direct
  vendor negotiations have secured some savings better than through CalSAVE and other
  consortium purchases.

  Future funding sources will include the above as available, and will grow through active
  applications for grants. Curricular focused programs that include the integration of
  technology, including subject matter projects, English Language Learner projects, library
  initiatives, and future federal and state programs that include technology, will be coordinated
  through the district Curriculum Department in order to provide coordinated components
  required by those programs.

  Note that the estimate below consolidates site and district costs together as one budget. For
  instance, much of the 2000 series includes site technology technicians, and the 4000 series
  includes costs for site computers, both of which are the responsibility of individual sites.
  Further, this estimate is exactly that, and as such depends on funding sources and even
  leveraging other funding programs, such as E-Rate, CalREN, and subject matter projects
  that incorporate technology as an integral part of their programs.

  6c. Replacement Policy for Obsolete Equipment
  The District has standardized on vendor platforms for equipment, software suites for
  integration with curriculum and assessment needs, and network and infrastructure
  equipment and standards. Given the nature of rapid changes within the development of
  specific machines and their capabilities, specific recommendations as to which
  equipment to purchase will always be dependent on a discussion with the District
  technology personnel and purchasing department. Current standards are listed on the
  tech department website and are updated when necessary. District technology personnel
  will keep in regular contact with selected vendors to understand new features and future
  release dates. The District technology personnel will coordinate with purchasing to
  assure that all purchases have been approved as financially feasible and with the proper
  specifications. Such policy will insure that machines purchased will remain current for as
  long as possible.

  Minimum standards for donated machines are also maintained on the technology
  department website on the forms and procedures page. These standards also change to
  reflect the ability of district software to run and the level of technical support the district
  can provide.

  Machines will be rotated through a four-year obsolescence cycle. Based on existing site
  inventories, machines will be ranked and prioritized for replacement by the school sites.

  PVUSD outdated machines will be recycled using procurement requirements of the state of
  California to approved recycling centers.

  6d. Monitoring Process
  The purchasing and inventory database will be used by site and program administrators to
  inform site and program planning, and will facilitate feedback among existing district
  decision-making bodies. The Site District Technology Liaisons will continue to report to the


   Pajaro Valley Unified School District Technology Plan – 20082011-20112014                       66
District Tech Leadership Team, meeting five times a year to review implementation data
regarding benchmarks reflected in this plan, discuss options, and make recommendations
regarding changes to this plan’s implementation. The Team’s District Technology Liaisons’
recommendations for infrastructure modifications and plan modification will be acted upon
by the Director of Technology, who reports to the appropriate district leadership group,
whether business, curriculum or cabinet, to drive the District’s decision-making and policy
choices in the area of educational technology procurement and management. District
personnel will participate in regional, statewide, and national technology meetings and
conferences, including the County Office of Education’s Tech Leaders meetings, the
Computer Using Educator’s Conferences, State and Regional CTAP meetings, and ISTE
national conferences, so that District purchasing decisions are informed by current
standards of practice and district leadership is aware of all relevant funding opportunities.

Monitoring and Evaluation
7a/b. Process and Schedule for Evaluating Overall Progress and Impact on Teaching
and Learning
All benchmarks are aligned with monitoring procedures and those responsible as stated in
benchmark/objective tables throughout this document. Please refer to them for detailed
monitoring plans and procedures.

The District Technology Leadership Liaison meetingsTeam, consisting of site Tech Liaisons,
site administrators, Technology Department staff, district partner program representatives,
Instructional Technology Coordinator, Assistant Director of Technology and Director of
Technology, will provide the lead in coordinating communication about the overall
implementation of the Plan. It will act as a facilitating body, ensuring communication flows
among District and Site administrators and teaching staff. The District Technology
Leadership team meets five times a yearwill meet to evaluate activities, plan for further
implementation and participate in professional development for that purpose. They will
collect and analyze data based on timelines connected with each benchmark. Once a year,
they will make recommendations on adapting the plan for the following year(s). Their
recommendations will be reported by the Director of Technology to the District Cabinet to
ensure the use of technology supports the curricular direction of the district and that this
document, as it changes and adapts to timeline changes and new educational technology
initiatives, aligns with district curricular and professional development plans.

7c. Communicating Evaluation Results to Stakeholders
The Director of Technology will be responsible for monitoring the communication of results
to stakeholders.

  Communication Activity                                        Frequency
    District Governance Board meeting presentations             Once/year

    Articles in local papers                                     Once/year and more often as
                                                                   news is notable
8a. Adult Literacy
The PVUSD Technology Integration Plan was developed in consultation with
representatives from the District’s CBET (Community Based English Tutoring) project
and from our CTC (Community Technology Center) member organization.
Representatives of the District’s Adult Education Department also participated in the
development of the Technology Plan. Adult Education had representatives on the
District’s Technology Liaison Committee that provided input and review of the
Technology Plan. The interests and concerns of the various adult literacy programs
were represented and integrated into the plan components.

The CBET program operates in close coordination with the District’s Extended Learning
and Adult Education programs, and also serves hundreds of community members. The
purpose of the Community-Based English Tutoring (CBET) Program is for local
educational agencies to provide free or subsidized programs of adult English language
instruction to parents or other members of the community who pledge to provide
personal English language tutoring to English learners. This is in accordance with
Education Code Section 315 and Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations Section
11305.

Community Technology Centers are a national, non-profit membership organization of
more than 700 independent community technology centers where community members
receive free access to computers and computer-related technology, such as the
Internet, together with learning opportunities that encourage exploration and discovery.

The PVUSD Adult Education Department operates the Watsonville/Aptos Adult School,
which offers a full schedule of adult literacy and computer skills classes to adult learners
in our community, both at its facility within the District and through co-operative
arrangements with many local school sites.

provide an Information Technology parent program called Falcon TEC Parent Program.
The goal for the program is to provide the instruction, recreational, academic, familial
and other supports necessary to encourage predominantly Latino, largely Spanish-
speaking students to pursue higher education and careers in I.T., where they are vastly
underrepresented.

The Falcon TEC Parent Program is going beyond traditionally limited, parent
involvement programs to create a program consisting of an information workshop series
designed to increase the parent’s ability to support the academic goals of their children.

Pajaro Valley Unified School District Technology Plan – 20082011-20112014                 68
This is accomplished by creating weekly, evening open computer labs designed to
provide access to “School Loop” and to provide I.T. skills for parents. There will be a
series of evening workshops designed to educate and develop parents into community
leaders who can help their children to pursue educational and career goals. These
workshops will increase the parent’s interests and ability to support and communicate
with their child. Learning how to access “School Loop”, parents will be able to check on
how their child is doing in class and to communicate with their teachers. A sample
workshop might include creating an email account, searching the web, or building a
resume, among other skill building activities. Students will also be able to come in to the       Formatted: Font: Arial, 12 pt

lab and use the computers for school work, research and work on TEC projects.                     Formatted: Font color: Auto



9b. Using Technology to Extend or Supplement District Curriculum

Videoconferencing capabilities are allowing the district to implement programs and
instruction that link our classrooms to experts and programs located anywhere around
the world. The district has three Polycom videoconference units that are connected to
the internet. All new Macintosh laptop purchases include built in video cameras. And in           Comment [hg20]: Still?
2008/2009, each site liaison will receive a video camera with professional development
on distance learning strategies provided by the AT&T Education Advocates program.
This program will greatly expand our ability to connect to the California State Park
PORTS project, sister classrooms, and a great many other resources that will be
covered in the program.

Distance learning opportunities, using programs like MIT’s Highlights for High School
program, iTunesU, and other resources provided by universities and educational partners
will be explored and included in instructional strategy use by high school teachers. Moodle
courseware is available as open source, and teachers have expressed interest in
developing online courses using Moodle as a delivery tool. Technology Liaisons and the
Instructional Technology Coordinator will support these activities as teachers express
interest.

Web 2.0 tools that facilitate collaboration between students, teachers and experts will be
expanded and used to improve educational opportunities. Interactive and collaborative
writing, planning, data, multimedia, social networking, virtual meeting and other tools will be
explored in context of sound instructional strategy use, exemplary uses, and ethical
considerations with students will be highlighted using local blogs and meeting
demonstrations to show district teachers the possibilities of using free, collaborative
software.
