- Our third meeting of the EdTech Council focused on the hour of code and getting students interested in learning more about programming. We had a presentation from Meg Omainsky on a digital citizenship lesson she had developed and had a rich discussion on the challenges of fitting digital citizenship into our busy days.

- The inaugural meeting of the EdTech Council boasted 27 attendees from 10 different school districts in the county. We got a chance to talk about EdTech news, get to know one another, problem solve some challenges we were all facing, crowd-source apps and web tools, and vote on the future of the group. After reviewing all of the feedback, Wednesdays from 4pm-6pm on a quarterly basis will be the schedule for 2015-16.
