Instructional Technology Specialist Donna Teuber of Ridge View High School in Columbia has been selected to participate in the Google Teacher Academy (GTA) taking place this week in Washington, D.C. The one-day professional development activity is designed to help K-12 educators benefit from innovative technologies.
In early 2009 the Modern Language Association (MLA) published the seventh edition of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. The handbook includes advice on every aspect of completing research papers, including citing the sources used in the preparation of the paper.
The new MLA citation style presented in the seventh edition of the handbook has been incorporated by the Discus vendors into their products in the following ways.
Media Specialist Dana Turner and the faculty at South Florence High School recently marked the Discus tenth anniversary during a hands-on training opportunity in their media center.
The recent EdTech 2009 conference, held in Myrtle Beach on October 14-16, went “Beyond the Limits” to showcase the latest in educational technology and professional development.
October will be a busy conference month for librarians, media specialists and other educators. It will be a busy time for Discus, as well, with staff planning the following presentations for these upcoming conferences. For complete session details, check out the conference program at each site.
