Good Food, Good Company and Great Learning!

Last week, the CAIS Commission on Technology hosted a sold out evening workshop “So Many Tools, So Little Time” at Hamden Hall Country Day School.  Modern Pizza (Famous in the New Haven area), dessert, drinks and learning were enjoyed by all!

With the theme of “speed dating”, technology tools were presented in 20 minute increments, where attendees could hopefully get an idea of whether or not the tool would be worth pursuing further. We hope that attendees were able to take home one or two new ideas.

Here are the presentations and resources shared.

Not Just Gaming! How to use Scratch in the Curriculum (Sarah Ludwig, Hamden Hall Country Day School)

iPad Apptivities (Lee Bruner, St. Luke’s School)

Collaborative Projects using Twitter (Nikki Cingiser, The Children’s School)

Please share any additional resources or feedback! Thanks to all who attended.

Special thanks to Jim Hunter (@1jockamo on Twitter), Hamden Hall’s Director of Facilities, who made it all go so smoothly!
