Act 48 Survey of Tech Flex: Feedback from Teachers
At the end of the year, teachers were asked to complete a survey to obtain Act 48 hours. This survey not only documented what the teachers learned by attending the Tech Flex Sessions, but also provided meaningful feedback to administration about this program. 

Here are a few teacher testimonials that were taken from the survey results.

"I enjoyed two the most-Google Calendars and Blackboard Assessment Planning. I planned units and presentation calendars for student projects, and I'm working on inputting more assessments in Bb (Blackboard) for my Bible and Literature classes. "

"SmartBoard Training- really helped me to feel more comfortable using the SmartBoard and learning its capabilities. It does so much more than I thought!"

"Technology in the Classroom that was taught at the beginning of the year. It gave me a lot of useful websites that I now use for projects with my students."

"I liked the Prezi session. I developed one to use in Honors American History to illustrate the presidencies of IKE, JFK, and LBJ along with a timeline for the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War."

"Wiki Beyond Basics- this was a great session. It allowed me to see how other staff members are using Wikis in their classrooms. I have updated and revised mine with some helpful colleague suggestions."

"Many of the sessions were helpful. As we continue to develop the online environment, the sessions on BlendedSchools were very helpful implementing the curriculum."
