Apples for the Teachers...and students, too!

Thanks to Mr. Campbell acquiring federal funds,
our school system has given new meaning to the
old phrase "An Apple For the Teacher."  The
students get apples, too, in the MacBook version.
If you have seen the "big rolling white things" and
you wondered what it was and what it housed, you
can stop wondering.  Inside the Mobile Apple Cart
is 20 student MacBook laptops, 1 teacher MacBook
laptop, 2 digital cameras, 2 video cameras, an
electronic keyboard, a HP All in One printer and 1
wireless airport.  Wow!  That's just about all I know
to say....Wow!  Each school has 2 to share but the
teachers in training need you to be patient as they
put their training to use.  The 3 day training has
been rigid and we have been given a wealth of
information to carry back to our schools.  However,
hands-on learning is the best learning and we want
to be proficient when relaying the information to
our colleagues.  Please feel free to stop in and 
see what we have and how the students are
responding to a "paperless" classroom.  Thank you,
Mr. Campbell, Dr. Horton, school board members 
and Mr. Locklin.  We are truly blessed to be a part
of Talladega City Schools.

We're using these at Trinity Middle School in Montgomery, Alabama. The kids absolutely love them!

I posted about it to our parents at www.tpsmiddle.blogspot.com .
