I think this is awesome. The tech department is often very busy during the year. They give us so many tools and ideas all at once in the summer, but once the school year starts, they are never to be found. Therefore, some of the equipment never gets used. How do you go about making sure you met every teacher? Do you set aside specific days?

Great idea, My school has recently started a 1 to 1 ipad integration with 8th grades. The staff at my school is terrified of adding new technology. Many of them don't want to put in the time to integrate the technology into their curriculum. I have been nominated as a volunteer iPad integration specialist. So far staff have not been receptive to professional development offered before school, after school or during prep periods. I have spent much of my prep time helping out other staff members start using the technology available to them. We only have 1 technology coordinator who has to cover 3 buildings. His job seems overwhelming trying to maintain our technology services and trying to teach staff how to use the technology. I am advocating that we add a technology curriculum specialist position. With that said I do think teachers in my school would respond well to a "Tech drive by."

I love the name. I recently started as a Tech Integration Specialist and have suggested we do this same thing. I'm glad I'm on the right track with my thinking....looks like it's working out great. Thanks for sharing!

This is a terrific idea. It's hard to always have time for everyone, but I'm sure the teachers in your school appreciate you checking in on them. Tech leaders need to be visible and accessible in exactly this way. Awesome - thanks for sharing.
