This year the KIS EdTech Team has two new members, and with that, new artwork. This year we outsourced this for the first time. We were fortunate enough to have my talented student, Melissa Rodriguez, create our “business cards” this year. Below is what I put together as our “team photo,” and then each individual card. Ben Summerton used the artwork to create our Keynote theme for the year. Check out our first presentation using the theme. This is some seriously cool artwork. Melissa is a graphic artist and freelances in her spare time. See some of her artwork, photography, and videos at melirodriguezart.com/.

Korea International School is starting the second year of our One To World program. All students in grades 3-5 are using iPads to enhance their learning. This year the One To World team created a “Boot Camp” for all students in the program. It is five weeks of activities that will help students to be comfortable using their devices, and teach them appropriate uses and etiquette.
