We have chosen to bring Digital Literacy to our school, which is the process of teaching and learning about technology and the use of technology. Our theme, “Get Carried Away” encourages teachers and students to soar to greater heights using web 2.0 tools.

- Evaluation and Results
We have set up three faculty meetings to be used solely for our project. The first two meetings were used to present a number of Web 2.0 tools to our faculty members. The PLP team presented and demonstrated a number of Web 2.0 tools that the teachers could use in their classrooms. The third meeting will be used for faculty presentations of some of the Web tools that we showcased in the previous meetings. The faculty must come to the meeting with artifacts that they have collected from the use of these Web tools. This will be our way of knowing if we were successful, thus far, in our plan to implement more technology in the classrooms. In addition, we have created a teacher website listing all of the Web 2.o tools that we have learned this year. Our hopes are that the faculty utilize our website to bring technology into their classrooms and help to make good digital citizens out of the students that they teach.
