Starting the conversation

Welcome to the new Central Point Tech Department weblog! Tomorrow, we are going to be working with some teachers from Central Point Elementary on getting their existing web pages and blog posts moved over to our brand new WordPress setup. All of us in the tech department have been working hard on this for about a week, and we’re all hopeful that this will be a tool for teachers that they can use to improve communication with parents and students.

We’re looking forward to getting a few more teacher blogs started tomorrow. Here are some of the teacher weblogs we’ve already set up:

Of course we are going to make an honest effort to use this technology for ourselves as well. We have already moved a couple of things over from our old web pages to this blog. We now have a page dedicated to Tutorials for Zimbra (our new email system) and a page showcasing some recommended free software that can be downloaded and used for free on your computer at school or at home.

That’s it for now. If you have any suggestions on things you’d like to see on this blog, feel free to jump in and leave a comment below!

    Thanks to Sam, Chuck and Allan for making WordPress an option for our teachers. Technology Support Services has always been committed to doing more with less, but this is critically important in our current economic climate. We will continue to investigate, evaluate, offer, and support open source software to replace their commercial counterparts where feasible.
