PSCTLT Open House a Great Success!
The Puget Sound Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology hosted an Open House on Monday, April 30th to showcase its new Canyon Park technology training center. Over 175 people attended the event, which was capped off with a ribbon-cutting by the PSCTLT Board of Directors. Visitors touring the center were treated to savory hors d'oeuvres, soothing jazz from the guitar duo Beautiful Soup and a variety of technology and teaching demonstrations in each of the new computer labs.

The Learning Space brought together six teachers from their various programs (Teachers Training Teachers or T3 and Intel Teach to the Future) to showcase how they are using technology in the classroom to improve learning. The teachers who participated were Brandi Smith, a kindergarten teacher, and John Dobmeier, a middle school vocational education teacher, from the Mukilteo School District and Rebecca Pringle, high school science, Renee Malowney, high school English and Timothy Arnot, high school English, from the Edmonds School District.

Pat Coelho, a PSCTLT instructor, gave an overview of the courses the PSCTLT will offer this summer. Catharine Reznicek demonstrated the use of course management software for online and distance learning, which included the use of an interactive web-based discussion forum. And, the Cisco lab provided an arena for six students from Mariner and Mountlake Terrace High Schools to showcase their cable making skills.

If you missed the open house, please feel free to drop by and see the PSCTLT Canyon Park center for yourself. Or, contact us for more information at [email protected]
