A training weekend for technology took place on 20/21 July. An interesting report has been received from ORT-Tech for Terms 1 and 2 and is available in the office should any trustee like to see this. While ORT-Tech is generally very pleased with the progress of this project, concern has been expressed regarding the intensity of the training and lack of classroom-based support to ensure the implementation of this training in the classroom. Loël and I have submitted project proposals to potential funders to enable us to provide classroom-based support for technology from the beginning of 2008.
An additional training weekend has been scheduled for the 27/28 July to make up for time lost during the strike. The facilitators have taken a lot of trouble to bring teachers who have been absent from training up to speed.
