Upcoming Tech Trainings

October 14: Storytelling with Kidblog...not just Reading :)

October 21: Nepris

All Tech Trainings will start at 3:15 in the library. Look forward to learning with you!

Nepris....connecting your classroom to professionals from around the world!

If you haven't checked out Nepris, I'd like to encourage you to take a few minutes and watch this introductory video. It's only 3:19!

This is a wonderful resource that brings real world experiences into your classroom. So many of our students don't have the resources or finances to have these learning experiences, and Nepris brings it to you. The possibilities are endless.....human body systems, lego art designer, podcasting, architecture, creating a business, forecasting the future weather, banking operations, pharmaceutical manufacturing, composting design, opera singer, how money is printed, video gaming design, building a trampoline ....and more!

For those of you who are do-it-yourself types, below is a link that will take you to a "How Nepris Works for Educators". It walks you through the entire process, from signing up to conducting your first Nepris session.

Important Note: Nepris requires at least a 3 week window when planning sessions, so please plan ahead.

Let me know when you've scheduled your session....there's a TrEaT for you :)
