Techie Tip of the week ~ Function F8 - Projecting Screen

Did you know you can work on grades while your students use the mimio or watch a video? By pressing the blue Fn Key (Function) and F8, you can change your screen projection? You can 'Extend' your screen and move windows over to your desktop monitor, which will project on to your overhead.

Teacher Spotlight!

Jennifer Chaney, our GT Teacher is diving in feet first! She's doing a fantastic job integrating technology and creating! Her favorite apps are Pinterest and the Holy Bible App. A goal she has for her students this year is to become digitens (digital citizens), who can understand and apply digital responsibility and internet safety. Thanks for all you do, Mrs. Chaney!
