  • Dear Board,
  • Thanks for a great meeting tonight!

  • Conference Report-Marcy
  • ---registration is live and the first table has already been "sold". IE has also provided the vendor list and contact information from last year's conference. This includes the registrants as well.
  • ---outsourcing conference work to Shawna. Marcy has been discussing with NMASCD the possibility that they should charge the $300 they pay Shawna each month against the costs against this conference. Marcy is suggesting that we consider putting a similar amount toward this conference and that could be part of our contribution toward the conference expenses. Marcy suggested that she could negotiate with Shawna for what the deliverables would be, what the time expectations would be, and what a reasonable payment would be for the expectation. Marcy also mentioned that she believes that she has already addressed much of the pre-work by getting the registration squared away and live. Ferdi and Brian both noted that the big issue now is truly the marketing and that falls to the NMLA and ISTE members. Marcy suggested that we pay Shawna $1,500 to work this conference for the remaining time and be the on-the-ground support during the two days of the conference.
  • Motion was made by Ferdi and seconded by Brian for Marcy to negotiate with Shawna to pay her work with getting the conference up, going and to a successful conclusion.
  • ---What can we do to address the "geek" constituaents? Some ideas would be technology plans and bandwidth to address the new assessment issues. Other issues to consider would be assistive technology and/or technology resources for RtI.
  • Digital Learning Day update-Ferdi
  • Jamaie is no longer participating in Digital Learning Day, and Ferdi just learned this today. Ferdi has a web site set up
  • http://NMdigitallearningday.schooltown.net
  • that is a repository
  • .
  • for our various materials on this topic. Digital Learning Day is Feb 1, 2012. Ferdi needs our stories from NM.
  • Membership-regonline-Marcy
  • Every membership costs NM-TIE a sum per year and Shawna has figured out how we can download our membership and upload it to another regonline account. This will allow us to move away from NM-TIE and get our own regonline account. Our goal is to get this done by the conference. Jill suggested that perhaps we use their merchant account and manage ourselves. Marcy observed that we could also sell our books online.
  • CTE update-Vern
  • The next CTE meeting will be January 31st on line. There is still some discussion about who might take over the approval for the technology plans. So far the offers have been CES or REC IX. The PED wants to let it go. There will be four open positions coming up.
  • NMCSA update-Ferdi
  • There are now briefings online every T/Th at 7:30 with Senator Asbill and they are very informative.
  • Senate Memorial update-Brian
  • http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/_session.aspx?chamber=S&legtype=JM&legno=%20%2026&year=12 <http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/_session.aspx?chamber=S&amp;legtype=JM&amp;legno=%20%2026&amp;year=12>
  • Senator Nava introduced this legislation this week. They will form a work group to study trends in distance education and report back to the LESC. Brian does not see this as being a particularly threatening study group, but we will probably want to get our input as an organization.

  • We also need to get nominations in for educators. Marcy is going to nominate Josh Silver, at Susie Busman's suggestion.. Now that we are partners with NMCSA, we will get to give this award at the summer administrators' conference, and that is a swank awards ceremony.
