coffeebreakTickets Available for Concert
The Danville Concert Association is hosting the North Carolina Symphony as they present the music of John Williams on Sunday, Oct. 13 at 3 p.m. in George Washington High School's auditorium. A limited number of tickets are available to faculty and staff on a first-come, first-serve basis. Contact Jennifer Hooper at ext. 17184 to get a ticket.


coffeebreakEngage Students in Learning
Consider using online educational videos to engage students in learning. Videos from TED Talks, YouTube and Khan Academy could be used as supplemental resources in an online course or to flip a face-to-face classroom. And you can easily embed videos so they appear to be a part of your Moodle course; watch this how-to video or email Kim McMurtry, instructional technologist, with questions. For more information, this article offers great ideas for flipping your classroom as well as a list of video resources organized by subject.


coffeebreakExcel Workshops Offered
