Resources & updates from the Hudson High School media center
September 10, 2018
how can i help you?
Please shoot me an email or call me in the media center to share your ideas and plan some great projects.
Chrome apps, extensions, and add-ons
During my tenure at Jackson Local Schools, I created a document that showcased a collection of Chrome apps, extensions, and add-ons. I hand-picked these resources because of their immediate benefit to students and teachers.
The document is still used for PD at Jackson Local Schools, but I wanted to share it with my colleagues in Hudson as well. Take a moment to check out these treasures.
Please let me know if you need help with any of these resources. I am happy to assist.
Reserving facilities in the media center
- Instructional Space - a full classroom of 40+ tables and chairs. A VPU is being installed soon.
- Digital Den - a computer lab for smaller groups. Contains 14 iMac computers and 7 zSpace 3D VR computers.
- Collaboration Station - contains two tables for small groups to plug their Chromebooks into televisions to collaborate on presentations. (Can be reserved by students.)
- Conference Room - contains tables and chairs for small groups (under 12) to work in a quiet environment.
Staff members can reserve the Instructional Space and the Digital Den by adding the rooms to a Google Calendar event. To do this, you can create a new event in Google Calendar. To the right of the screen, click on ROOMS and browse the available rooms in HS. If the Instructional Space or the Digital Den are available, you can select it. (See image below.) Once these resources are reserved by someone, they disappear from the available rooms in Google Calendar.
If you wish to reserve the Conference Room, the Collaboration Station or the entire media center main floor, please give us a call on extension 1412. We'll be happy to help you.
