Karl Fisch, director of technology at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, CO, is glad to be back in the classroom this fall, albeit teaching just one section of Algebra. He's been at the school since the early '90s, transitioning into the full-time technology position as the school 12 years ago before returning to the classroom because of budget cutbacks. Through grants Fisch has received, Arapahoe High is a 1:1 laptop school, creating blogs, Podcasts and writing Web-based "textbooks" for their science courses. Fisch believes in staff development, introducing new instructional and technology tools. He writes a blog, The Fischbowl, at http://thefischbowl.blogspot.com.
