|Welcome to our newsletter. Use the new media tools linked below as a means of communicating news about technology in teaching and learning at Palomar College. Follow us in one (or all) of these ways.
This month we have released our tentative summer Tech Camp agenda, announce the availability of Office 2010 from the FCCC for Palomar employees, take a look at some of the Office 2010 tools, examine two types of course syllabi, discuss the merits (or not) of Wikipedia, and even submit for your edification maps that changed the world.
Chris Norcorss' new blog, The Monkey Wrench, is where the map article is posted. He is filling in for Dave this month while Dave is on vacation.
Our summer tech camp is fully enrolled, but watch for fall 2010 training opportunities and next January's winter tech camp.
