As someone in the technology department, we get our share of gripes, but we also get praise. It’s wonderful when someone acknowledges you for your hard work. After going to the VSTE ITRT conference (referenced earlier), I can say with certainty that we are very fortunate for what we have in Goochland. Even more so, we’re fortunate for the folks we have doing the work they do. They’re truly are among the best in the Commonwealth, if not beyond.
But gratitude is even richer when it comes from our students. I recently came across this post from a student who likes what we’ve been up to over the summer. Yes, we have new blogs, we have a new version of Moodle that’s rolling out, updated images for student machines (sorry, still at Tiger), and hopefully before September, a new website. Not to mention all the behind-the-scenes things like updated PowerSchool, a community response system, and upgrade connectivity at our outlying elementary schools.
Summer is always a busy time for technology.
