An effort by administrators to expand communication with the Deerfield Public Schools District 109 Community using technology was evident in reports made Monday at the Board of Education meeting.
Among other things, the Board learned about efforts to instruct teachers how to use Twitter for their professional development, heard a proposal to upgrade the District’s wireless Internet system and a plan to add IPads and Chromebooks to classrooms.
Before those reports and discussions, the Board heard a report from Superintendent Michael Lubelfeld discussing research showing a majority of residents are happy with the District and their children’s school, the fact 123 people have signed up to serve on his Task Force for Middle School Education so far and more.
People can now keep up to date with Lubelfeld through his blog on the District website.
Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning Jeff Zoul talked about a number of initiatives including a class he conducted last week on using Twitter to help teachers use Twitter for their professional development attended by 90 people.
Patch will have more detailed information on these items later this week.
