HP Sprout G2 3D-scanning PC

It's niche, but the Sprout G2, with its integrated 3D and 2D scanners, is perfect for product designers, CGI creators and other folks who can benefit from incorporating 3D models into their workflow. It's also got a stylus-enabled touch mat that acts as a second screen.

1941 TV COMMERCIAL

The first ever TV commercial in the US airs on WNBT, New York.


The first TV ad was for Bulova watches (it cost the company $9.00). Bulova also produced the nation's first radio spot commercial in 1926 and introduced the clock-radio in 1928!

NOTES FROM MR. SCOTTO

When you have a moment, take some time to review the resource link Kevin recently created. It has been placed on the curriculum webpage under a section titled, "instructional technology." The resource page was created so staff could have a "go to" spot for training handouts, videos, and so much more.



In addition, we will be running Google Training Sessions in all six buildings during the months of April and May; please consider attending.
