Educational Technology Showcase - Sept. 21-29
Have you ever heard someone say, “I don’t know what technologies I want to use in my classroom – I don’t even know what is available”? As we look to update technologies in our Education building classrooms we want to answer that question. We have assembled a technology showcase to be held in Room 162 from September 21st to September 29th. During this event we will have on display multiple versions of classroom technologies like document cameras, interactive displays, and much more. We will also have demonstrations on how to use the equipment. Recommendations from faculty will be used to guide future classroom purchases during 2016-2017. So mark your calendar and look for future updates!

PDS 2016-2017 Combined Calendar
2016 begins a new cycle of partnership for WCE and our surrounding school districts. In June we celebrated the signing of our 2015-2018 PDS school-university partnership agreements. We are looking forward to three more years of continued collaboration with our surrounding 12 school districts and two charter schools! With the close of the last partnership cycle, two distinct PDS initiatives came to end. In the coming weeks, our office will share information regarding the continuation of these revised programs: Master Teachers and Partnership in Action. Over the summer, revisions to these programs were made based on faculty, PDS partner, and PDS Advisory Board feedback. We are excited to share these opportunities for faculty to work more intensely with teachers and administrators in our partnership schools!
Second, as you may know, each year our office works to create a combined calendar reflecting important dates for each district/school in our partnership. The combined calendar is downloadble, but can also be accessed using the link below. You will also notice that this page on our PDS website provides easy access to all district-specific calendars in our partnership. http://www.uncw.edu/ed/pds/indexcalendar.html
As a reminder, the PDS office continues to send Friday Updates to our school partners every other week via email. If you have items you would like to share during the spring semester, please contact Somer Lewis at email@example.com.
