Summer Training

In August of 2010, we, Creek Squad, took a break from our break and went back to school to train for the school year. It was an all day experience with our tech director, Joe Francis, and the guys from Grant Wood, Stacy Behmer and Andy Crozier.  We got to familiarize ourselves with the schools new laptops and got the chance to have some actual training in the Apple application that come along with them. We made Podcasts after learning how to integrate the different tools together. Creek Squad gave us all a reason to look forward to the school year.

How We Started

During the summer of 2010 the Creek Squad presented a presentation to the Clear Creek Amana school board. At this meeting our goal was to get laptops and desktop computers for the Middle School. To achieve this goal we used our technology skills to make a Google Doc PowerPoint. At the beginning of the PowerPoint we knocked them off their feet with an amazing video about the 21st century and how all kids want and use technology. Then we went on talking about the benefits and the obstacles we were going to have to overcome. We talked about how we were going to overcome the obstacles and the problems that we had and needed to overcome. We also talked about our long term goal which was one student to one computer.
In the end, we came out with 110 laptops and 20 desktop computers, and we use these every day in our 21st Century Writing class. We will continue working towards our goal of having every student have their own computer. ~Moriah Johnson
