New Teachers Tech Up in New Teacher Tech Training

Teachers became more proficient in the use of Power School tools, MAP data, building a classroom website, and digging deeper into Google Apps. Bellevue's new teachers receive four days of technology training throughout the school year. This group does an excellent job of taking advantage of these learning opportunities. It was wonderful working with so many positive teachers! If you see a new teacher after one of their trainings, ask them what they learned. We bet they would be able to teach others some new great tools!

3 Great Places to Back up Your Content!

Between these three options, there is no reason to store any content on your hard drive. Why is this important? Because every now and then, your mac will need some tender loving care - or in other words be re-imaged. If all of your content is backed up then you can sleep soundly, knowing you can always get to your lessons, ideas, documents, and accounts.
