    I'm going to a 21st Century Skills/Technology Academy next week. It's every day, all day, and for teachers in my district. A few teachers are selected from each school to attend per year. In the spring I submitted a technology request, and yesterday I found out everything was approved!!! The other teacher who is going and I will have a set of 30 laptops to share, along with mice and headphones (I'm going to see if I can keep 4 in my room permanently as a center, and she can use the rest), wireless for my hallway, and a document camera of my own.

    I'm SOOO excited! :D I can finally get rid of the huge 1995 computers I have in my classroom, and have WORKING laptops.

    Congratulations!! I do have to say I'm a little bit jealous of the document camera.

    Thanks, everyone!

    I'm definitely more excited about the document camera. I've wanted one for so long.
