Nearpod pics? Share them. Presentations? Share them. Let everyone know about the good things going on at CHS.
Flipgrid is here
Lubbock ISD has purchased premium licenses for Flipgrid. In order to qualify for the premium version, you must complete a Flipgrid digital badge. Once you have completed the badges, submit the license request.
Flipgrid allows you to assign topics/tasks/prompts to which students respond with video. The basic version allows for 30- or 90-second clips. You can opt to moderate responses. Assign through Classroom or share the code. Students may use Chromebooks or phones to record, and they can re-record as many times as needed. It also has an app so that you and your students can access it in a variety of ways.
Find out more about Flipgrid here.

Technology update & Innovator Grant info
Because security issues with older devices forced this issue and because the issue is district wide, there will be no funds for Innovator Grants this year.
If you have a project that you would like to submit for grant funding, consider the Foundation for Excellence grants.
EdTech South Plains Google Summit
90-minute sessions should be hands-on. They will be presented only once. The playground sessions will be conducted in 3 rounds in the Lubbock HS cafeteria. Share a cool project or tech tool and how you and your students use it in the classroom. Groups will rotate around the cafeteria, and you would present the same 15-minute session each times.
If you are interested in presenting, complete the Request for Presenters form by March 19. The two days of Google Summit will count as flex time.
