So we had our workshop today... not bad, six teachers, so that's half the department. Two others were working at school and couldn't make it. A good four hour session with a pro-user who's also a teacher. While he didn't cover a lot of the fundamental stuff or get into all the changes in the user interface that Maple 12 has, he did keep up with most of our teachers (we're an agressive bunch when it comes to learner... doctors making the worst patients and all). There was a nice bit of work done with programming and question construction. Hopefully things will come of it... we discussed a lot of classroom issues while we were learning Maple. Now I have to have some serious stuff ready for next week!
