Here we are, squarely in the middle of summer, when the heat has returned (loved that spring-like weather for awhile), and its time to think about our club activities. If you are like me, its hard to stay indoors when there is so much to enjoy outside (okay, there are some choirs there too).
Our last meeting was great fun with information about new operating systems to be released in the Fall, a variety of tips and tricks, how to prepare to resell your technology, all types of storage devices, and the dimensions of data clouds. Winners of the doorprize drawing included:
Rosalind Moulton $10 iTunes card
Bonnie Culley Caribiner appleJAC pen
Ken Zindle appleJAC pen
Dustin Stark Caribiner appleJAC pen
Julie Smith appleJAC keyring
Ann Lane Apple card holder
Our next meeting promises to be new and different with its focus on Apple@Work: How Technology is Used in Education at the Jefferson City Public Schools (JCPS). With a host of Macs, over 3,500 iPads and much more, this will be an interesting display and discussion of how kids are benefitting from technology (see agenda below). Their Technology Instruction Coordinator will be our principal presenter, with the Director of Technology also available for questions.
The meeting location has moved to the JCPS Dix Education Center, located at 204 Dix Road in Jefferson City (see map at bottom for easy directions to get there).
