Whatever It Takes!

This week I was particularly blown away by the 5th grade teachers and students at Oak Meadows Elementary who are doing whatever it takes to get connected.

What Oak Meadows might lack in terms of technology, they make up with an overwhelming amount of teacher heart and creativity.  Bert Bassett, in particular, has gone to great lengths to scavenge enough devices to supplement a makeshift BYOD (bring your own device) environment that began earlier this school year. Yesterday, we brainstormed even more ways that students could use what they have to further their classroom collaboration and they will be going Google next week.

It’s this kind of can-do attitude that really exemplifies the growth mindset we value here at Manor ISD. Look for further updates as OME 5th graders first connect with one another and then take their collaboration beyond their classroom walls!
