Lego Robotics Camp At Doby’s Mill

I spent an enjoyable few minutes over at Doby’s Mill Elementary School this morning watching the kids participating in the Lego Robotics Camp.  I especially enjoyed watching the campers rummaging through a huge pile of parts to get what was needed to begin building and programming a robot.  They were obviously having a great time and learning a lot. 

While I was there, I also saw DMES teacher Jakki Wiseman and challenged her class to another “Multiplication Smack Down” this coming year.  I better start practicing now….

Blogging and Podcasting

I enjoyed participating yesterdaywith our communications person, Mary Anne Byrd, in a session for other communications people on how our district uses blogging and podcasting.  I got a lot of very favorable comments on the way we use these very effective and cost-efficient approaches to communication, in addition to a lot of very positive comments about our website in general.  Thanks and kudos to both Mary Anne and Julie Putnan, our webmaster, for the great job they do with our electronic communication!
