March 25, 2020 Covid Quarantine Week 2
Invite me to your Team Meetings! I would love to join!
My Office Hours
Just FYI- I will take a break each day from approximately 11:30am to 12:30pm for lunch and a daily DLC check-in!
You are also welcome to send emails with questions!
If you need help, please let me know.
If you Checked out ANY equipment to take home...
We ALSO need you to complete the digital form for each item. So if you took a laptop and a doc cam, you need to fill out the form twice. You can find the form here.
The district Communication Guidelines have also been updated since they came out last week- Canvas conferences are OUT (they get overloaded and shut down quickly) and Google Hangouts Meet is IN (Google actually changed their tool last week making it more educator friendly.)
Also, the DLCs are compiling a master list of resources. It is pretty long- more comprehensive than mine, and I have linked a button to it at the top of my eLearning Resources Smore.
Remind Issues- Messages Going to Wrong People
Students submitting photos of work
Have something a student already submitted that needs converting? Check out https://cloudconvert.com/heic-to-jpg
You may want to put something at the top of your canvas, classroom, etc to remind them what they need to be looking at. If they lose that big lesson plan document, they can always find it by visiting the lTHS web site. Under the Staff tab is a link to the Covid-19 page and that is where the link is. It is also a news item at the bottom of the page and it is linked in the pop up announcement front and center when they hit our page.
LockDown browser for College Board
Students can install on their own device from this site- https://apclassroom.collegeboard.org/lockdown
Please note that if all they have is their own chromebook, there is not a way for them to get the browser.
We are working an alternate system for help requests should our quarantine continue.
