Schools meet for tech workshop

More than 150 teachers and staff from Brockton’s Cardinal Spellman High School, Kingston’s Sacred Heart High School, and Braintree’s Archbishop Williams High School met for a day-long technology workshop March 16 at the Braintree school. The event capped off six sessions of professional development to help teachers champion the “one-to-one” iPad initiative in which the devices have been distributed to students to use in and out of school. Sessions were funded by a $45,000 grant from the Catholic Schools Foundation. “It’s been an adventure; the iPad has been a great tool,” said history teacher Jimmy Daley, who has worked at Cardinal Spellman for 38 years. “The more we learn, the more we change. It’s good to stay on our toes.”
