September Tech Meeting

Pandora

According to the powers that be at Pandora, teachers are not allowed to play Pandora through speakers for your class unless you have a membership which is $25.00/month. You can play Pandora through a free account when it is just you in the room, but unfortunately, you aren't supposed to use it for a group of people.

iBoss

iBoss is the program JCS uses to monitor computers. ALL computers are heavily monitored. Please be careful about what websites you visit when logged into a JCS computer (this includes Chromebooks when at home also). If you or your students log into Chromebooks for the first time and see a message about iBoss, click "Allow". If you don't, iBoss will lock down several features and you won't be able to do very much on the computer.

Smore Flyers

This flyer was created on www.smore.com. You can add pictures, text, audio, and more. It's a great way for you to create and send newsletters to parents, clubs, let students create as a project, etc. It is also really easy. they have it already laid out for you. All you have to do is click and type and decide what background you want.
