GK Tech Involved with TEALS

    GK Technology believes in giving back to the community so we became involved in the TEALS program. TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) is a program GK believes strongly in; providing skills for students to grow on. Darin Johnson and Kelly Sharpe, co-owners of GK Technology, along with two other volunteers in the community, Brandon Mickelson and Jeremy Melting, give 50 minutes a day, five times a week to teach kids (and teachers) at Norman County West High School (Halstad, MN) basic computer science concepts. Summer training classes were given by Microsoft to provide them with information on making lesson plans and leading classes.
   About TEALS: TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) helps high schools throughout the US build and grow sustainable computer science programs. In its proven program, TEALS pairs trained computer science professionals from across the technology industry with classroom teachers to team-teach computer science. Industry volunteers and partner teachers create a ripple effect, impacting the students they teach, and the many students who will study CS in the future. TEALS was started in 2009 by Microsoft employee Kevin Wang, who developed and ran the program in his spare time, and is supported by Microsoft Philanthropies.
   Below is a YouTube link to the Microsoft TEALS program.


NAIP Imagery 2017

By Clint Streeter

    The FSA has released the planned coverage of their National  Aerial Imagery Program (NAIP) for 2017.  Last year, they began to collect some states at a 60 centimeter sample resolution versus the typical 1 meter and as it appears have decided to continue doing the same for 2017.  See the included map to determine if your area will be collected this year.  Once they are available online, we will once again make them accessible for extraction in our Online Data feature of ADMS.
