Have you ever wished you could receive PD credit from your couch on your own time? Get ready to! Beginning on August 21st and each Tuesday after that we will begin offering Twitter Chats under the hashtag #RCSTechChat!

Each chat will be one hour in length. By participating in the #RCSTechChat, you will be able to receive up to 3 hours of PD credit. (One credit hour per chat.)

Go ahead and get your Twitter accounts created & updated. Twitter is a great way to grow your Professional Learning Network (PLN)!

Edlio: Teacher Webpages Made Easy

Rutherford County Schools is excited to announce that it is moving to an easy to use, consistent communication tool with Edlio webpages. Teachers can now update their webpage from any device. Parents and students have the option to subscribe to the teacher’s site and receive push notifications. In this session, teachers will create a page, update their profile, add assignments to their class calendar, build picture or video galleries, and more. Teachers will be amazed at how easy and fast this communication process can be.
