A weekly bulletin of tips, tricks, and news in edtech

Week of 11/4/19

Welcome to this week's edition of Power edTech Weekly!

This week's edition features a "quick tip" to help you add a printer to your desktop computer, a resource for Math teachers, a 15-minute per week tutorial to get you more comfortable with Google, a podcast recommendation, and more!

Schedule Change

My home base since the start of the school year has been at NMS, and will continue to be. But, in order to be more available for my NHS friends, I plan to plant myself in the library on Days 3 and 6 on a regular basis. If you or your students need any tech help or recommendations, I'll be there on Days 3 & 6 starting on Wednesday, November 6!

Of course, I am available to help on other days anywhere in the district, just let me know when works for you!

Need some One-on-One Help?

I am happy to be available to any Northbridge staff member that needs some extra help with using technology. Whether it is setting up your class website, getting started with Google Classroom, or just brainstorming ideas on engaging your students with technology, set up a time to meet. My place or yours?

Find a time that works for you and me. I'll come to your classroom, or you can meet in my office at the middle school. Whichever is more convenient for you!

Quick Tip of the Week

This week's quick tip is how to easily add a printer to a Desktop computer on the NPS network. Here it goes:

Math Teacher?

Are you a math teacher? Are you looking for a resource that will help you easily check on your students' understanding of the topics you are teaching? Have I got something for you!

ASSISTments is a product put out by WPI, easily connects with Google Classroom, and can have you assigning problems to your students to complete as formative assessments in no time. If you have used ASSISTments in the past and were frustrated with it's clunkiness, it is new and improved and super user friendly.

Below is a link to some online PD that will help get you up and running. If you need any help, email me or schedule a one-on-one time with me.

Podcast Episode Recommendation

This week's podcast episode recommendation is Episode 36 from the Shake Up Learning podcast titled "13 Tips to Organize Your Google Drive".

I'm on Wakelet!

I've been using Wakelet as a way to organize some of the resources I've been sharing with you all. You can check out my Wakelet board by visiting the link below. You can create your own board to organize the resources you share with your students, as well!
