LCM joins forces with Atom Learning
Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD has taken steps this school year to become increasingly efficient at integrating technology into the school and the classroom. According to Kim Allen, Director of Technology, “Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD has joined forces with Atomic Learning, Inc. (AL), a nationally respected provider of Web-based software training, as part of the District’s new professional development program. The initial phase of deployment of the new professional development platform will include members of the District Technology Committee this summer. The full implementation with LCM’s faculty and staff is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2010. Future plans include student access to the program during the second quarter of 2011.”
Dr. Pauline Hargrove, LCM CISD Superintendent said, “Our District is committed to excellence for all by providing students and educators the knowledge and skills necessary to attain the highest levels of success. We believe this portion of the District’s new professional development program will assist our educators in developing 21st century teaching strategies that will inspire, encourage, and empower our students to reach their full potential and prepare them for their future careers in our technology-infused world. The District recognizes and appreciates that technology is the means by which our students live and learn. Therefore, it is our responsibility and pleasure to embrace the opportunities it offers and use it for the benefit of all.”
