SAMR CRUSH!!! COMING SOON!!
Whether it's using the board or not make sure that your PLC sets a goal above S &A and implements a lesson. The challenge board can help you, but is by no means all that you can do!
I will check in with PLCs to see what goals you guys have set to grow with tech. Remember to swim laps with tech, all the levels are fine just make sure you move through them.
SAMR Crush will be starting soon, so be ready to play! Let's crush it!

Looking to zhoosh up your presentations?
Great to use on projects, plcs, trainings, etc.
The teacher sees a running log of who needs help, and doesn't have to worry about who raised their hand first... it's right there on the screen!
I could also see this being used when you have student-helpers who can assist other students. Lots of ways to use ClassroomQ in your classroom, and it's SUPER quick and easy to set up!

SCHOOLOGY PARENT PORTAL IS NOW OPEN
Please make sure that your courses have an updated banner, instructional content aligned with your learning objectives, and grade books synced to Skyward.
Keep in mind that if you are including instructional content coming from Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, etc. in your courses, parents will not be able to view the files unless you set the Sharing rights in Google to Anyone with the Link can view (not Anyone at Klein ISD with the link can view).
Lastly, if you want to preview your course as a parent within the Schoology portal, please check out this VIDEO.
InsertLearning → Make ANY Website A Learning Experience
The extension allows anyone to take any online content (including content that you might have on a published Google Doc) and insert annotations, sticky notes, open-ended or multiple choice questions, and discussion forums. When students go to that website, they can respond to those questions and discussions and take their own notes. Teachers then go to their IL Teacher Dashboard, select the class & lesson, then view and grade student work.
