On Friday, August 12, 2011 teachers across
Vermilion Parish gathered at their home based
schools to begin a new year on each of their
Dozier Elementary Principal Karla
Toups and Assistant Principal Natalie Hebert had
meetings set up for a variety of topics.
One portion of the faculty
meeting involved a technology component. Lola
Potier, Director of the TLTC center was on hand
to share Web 2.0 tools with the teachers to help
integrate more technology lessons with the
Web 2.0 is a category of Internet tools and
technologies which involve educators who use
media, access the Internet, and use the Web to
facilitate interactive learning with their
students in the classroom.
The Dozier leaders decided to
take advantage of the expertise of Potier who
will be retiring along with her TLTC co-director
Denise Clarke on August 31, 2011.
The TLTC Region IV Technology
center based in Kaplan will be closed by
September 1st due to lack of funding. Both
