LKSD was awesome enough to buy some days for Apple to come out and train students and teachers on how to use some of those Apple programs.
A couple of weeks ago Tony (a.k.a Apple Tony) met Lee and I in Bethel and we quickly departed to Newtok, AK. This was my second visit to Newtok and I had just as much fun as my first visit there. Upon arrival in Newtok we were immediately put to work and we spent the entire time teaching students and teachers how to use iMovie, Keynote and other Apple Apps as well. I really like Newtok...the teachers are great there and the students are great there too.
One of the teachers in Newtok also had his kids working on a really fun project. Their task was to dismantle a dead copy machine and to create a toy. The class was totally into the project and the room was entirely destroyed. There were little pieces EVERYWHERE and all day long you could hear the kids pounding away on the copy machine! It was so fun. When I went in there to take pictures some of the kids didn't even notice I was in there.
Here are the pics from Newtok!
Apple Tony going over Keynote!
Look how excited the kids are! And they're working together! Ahhhh...technology.
