Technology Newsletter for 1/10


A snow day doesn’t have to mean no school day. Using Google Classroom teachers can provide assignments and students can move forward with their learning. Access to their teacher is just an email or comment away. Students can work collaboratively with their peers to discuss the assignments. Learning continues.

You have a Twitter what?

Using the search bar, look for topics that interest you. So if you’re a middle school science teacher, you might look for “middle school science.” The search results will show you accounts of people who have listed those terms right in their profile—definitely check those people out as possible people to follow.

Increasing technology proficiency requires a certain amount of risk. You have to be willing to play around to build the skills so you look like you know what you are doing when it goes live. Cave Spring and Model Elementary are spending time playing so students and stakeholders know what is happening in their schools via YouTube. Check em’ out and find out how you can build your Mad Skills.

Mark your calendars!
