Last week 25 librarians, facilitators and teachers from across the district gathered for our first INTERACT LE.  Each of our activities throughout the week incorporated technology, but were centered on Marzano’s Instructional Strategies that Work.  We looked at a variety of items and ideas such as iPods, student response systems, digital storytelling, claymation, and geocaching.  We also spent an afternoon looking at Ruby Payne’s A Framework for Understanding Poverty with Randy Donnell, Rebecca Schultz, and Elsa Villarreal.

All the participants came in with a great attitude and really gave everything to make the week special.  It was an awesome week for the participants and even better for the CITS!  We loved the great personalities and ideas that were displayed throughout the week.

Just when the participants thought it was over, we had one more trick up our sleeves!  Take a look at the surprising ending to our week!

Thanks for an awesome week INTERACT LE 2010 participants!!
