What they are saying.....
Lessons Learned from Collaborate 21, 2012:
"As an administrator I learned that I need to allow more collaborative planning time for all of my staff."
"The library media specialist was the tie-in."
"My vision for the library media specialist has changed and is evolving."
"Our library media specialist is now seen as a 21st Century educator."
"This group has set the bar pretty high for what I will expect from other teachers, now."
"I have learned that if I trust my teachers, they can do great things. I am so proud of the teachers and the students for their collaborations."
"This project has brought our technology coordinator, the school library media specialist and our classroom teachers together to the benefit of the students."
