SVRTC members from Amelia, Brunswick, Charlotte, Colonial Heights, Cumberland, Danville, Dinwiddie, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Nottoway, Pittsylvania, Prince Edward and Sussex attended the January SVRTC meeting to learn more about Hapara’s Teacher Dashboard. Mr. Greg Richman from Hapara shared with members the learning management system Teacher Dashboard.
Especially during COVID19, teachers are looking for new digital tools to use. Mr. Richman discussed how this product has analytics that will help teachers see and gauge what areas need more attention.
This product can increase a teacher’s efficiency in the classroom by organizing access to G Suite student fields and Drives on a single dashboard. This tool will work on any device that supports the full version of Chrome. As for price, Mr. Richman discussed bulk discounts for the SVRTC as a group. He encouraged members to contact him to discuss the product and pricing in more detail.
In March, SVRTC was prepared to celebrate its 25th year of ‘Educating Southside School Divisions in Emerging Technologies’. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our annual awards banquet was cancelled. While it has taken a while for us to figure out the best way to celebrate our awardees, we found four special guests to help us celebrate our SVRTC awardees and announce our (long overdue) competitive award recipients for Division Leadership Award and Technology Leadership Award:
Officially, our competitive awards were announced at 3:30pm, Thursday, December 10, 2020 through ITTIP’s Youtube channel video premiere, SVRTC 2012-2020 Banquet Awardees. Recognition for each SVRTC division Teacher, Technology and Support awards were also distributed early in the Fall and shared as Twitter posts from both the ITTIP Twitter and SVRTC Twitter accounts. There is also slideshow available with pictures and descriptions of those awardees.
