Mr. McCasland was up next to talk about 21st Century learning skills, and the need for schools to become more flexible and creative learning environments.
Mr. Spraberry discussed how he, and some of the fourth grade teachers, have be using Evernote to document learning and share experiences, ideas and reflections with their peers. He also talked about how technology skills taught at school can, and are being applied to other aspect of their lives. Mrs. May, proud parent of Jenna May (an ex-student of Mr. Spraberry's) talked about how Jenna took the skills learned in her fourth grade classroom to help her cousin Dylan who had been diagnosed with a rare disease at the age of 1. The Eanes ISD 'WHEEL' was brought to life by the actions of this elementary student. True testament to the fact that not only do we make a difference in the lives of our students but our reach can be much wider than that.
There are exciting times ahead for the Eanes community. I am thankful to be a part of them!
