The EVSC ICATS are excited to announce that we have opened registration for the 2014 eRevolution Conference which will take place at Central High School in Evansville, Indiana on July 9-10, with a special preRevolution day of workshops on July 8th.
This year’s conference continues the long tradition of excellent learning opportunities that people have come to expect from the eRevolution, while adding many new and exciting features.
preRevolution Workshops- Join us on April 8th for full-day workshops that offer deep, hands-on learning. Free lunch included!
Focus on Student Voice- We know that kids are so much more than a test score, and we’re inviting them to help us build a better world.
More Ways to Connect- We want your experience with the eRevolution to begin today, and we have lots of ways for you to join in the fun!
The Board has established a new closed MEMBERS ONLY Facebook group. You MUST be a member of the group in order to see the content in the group. If you are a member, make certain you have ask to join. Your membership will be checked against the online membership database, and when confirmed, you will be admitted to the closed members only group.
During the month of March, the ICSS official website (this site) will undergo a redesign. While general information will be available on the front page of the website, many important resources will be moved to the member-only section of the website.
The Board is implementing the use of Adobe Connect through the Director of Communications. Adobe Connect will allow for video conferencing and the creation of audio/video classrooms. It will also allow ICSS to archive materials developed for ICSS members. Members will be given usernames and temporary passwords when the system is in full operation. These logins will allow for participation in virtual events and rapid access to archived ICSS e-resource classroom materials.
Not certain what we are talking about when we refer to ICSS e-resources for the classroom. Check out a couple examples.
