Parent Tech Nights

In this 21st century learning environment, we want to partner with parents to help them understand the many online resources available to students and parents. Parents are encouraged to attend one of two Parent Tech Nights held on August 19 & 21 at 6:00 PM at the ESC. Please assist with promoting this opportunity to your students parents. The link below takes you to the website where parents can RSVP. Please share with your parents at Back to School Night and any communication you have with them the first few days of school.

Canvas Workshop Trainings

A plethora of ZCS teachers and administrators attended the July Canvas Workshops this month. Just a reminder that you can find great resources (quick guides, videos, links) in the "Welcome to Canvas" and "Canvas Resources" courses. Both Carly and I are available to assist as well. Contact Kyle Beimfohr or Carly Havlik if you have any questions or unable to access the two courses.

Web 2.0 Resource Idea

Piktochart

Infographics are found in all types of publications. Do your students know how to read an infographic? Piktochart is a great resource where you and your students can create professional looking infographics that can be used in the classroom. Contact Kyle Beimfohr or Carly Havlik for ideas on how to tie it to your curriculum.

The Kids Are Coming!

Many of our students have started to drive. For a little "Back to School Humor," watch this short Drivers Ed video and be afraid, very afraid! Have a great week!
