Professional Development

January 23, 2010

Science teachers from schools throughout Vermilion Parish met at Kaplan High School on January 23, 2010 to participate in a 6 hour workshop which highlighted the integration of  technology into the science curriculum. Teachers from LeBlanc Elementary were trained using PASCO'S new SPARK Science Learning System, while teachers from other schools were trained using PASCO'S GLX Datalogger.  The workshop was made possible by funding from Chevron.
