GLMA Summer Institute Agenda

GLMA Summer Institute
June 22-23, 2009
Macon State College

Dear Colleagues:

The GLMA Summer Institute will be held next Monday and Tuesday (June 22-23, 2009) at Macon State College in Macon, GA. This year’s theme is “Recipe for Success: GPS is the Spice and the Media Specialist is the Chef” and we’ve put together an exciting agenda that will be a great working and learning opportunity to help you integrate GPS into your program.

Because we will also be working during this meeting, I would like to ask that you bring with you a laptop and electronic and hard copies of a few lesson plans. This will be useful during our working sessions.

Below you will find a draft agenda and directions to Macon State College. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me or Amanda Griffin in the Executive Office.

We look forward to seeing you next week!
