Safe Schools and Web 2.0!

The full day workshop (5 hours) will give administrators the tools needed so they are able to update their school's technology plan (i.e. professional development around technology). The tech plan needs to be updated so that social media, Web 2.0 technologies, and social learning so are incorporated into the school's vision and goals.
