Lunch & Learn

New in 2016... COME JOIN US!

Wednesday, Jan, 20, 2016 11:30-12:30 (MultiPurpose Room)

Please bring your lunch and join Jerri Kemble and members of Technology Services Department as we share various technologies and/or strategies that will enhance and help make you more efficient in organizing and accomplishing your tasks at work and home.


This session will focus on Symbaloo.

(A Door prize will be awarded...)

SYMBALOO

Symbaloo is a cloud-based application (founded in 2007) that allows users to organize and categorize web links in the form of buttons. Symbaloo works from a web browser and can be configured as a homepage, allowing users to create a personalized virtual desktop accessible from any device with an Internet connection.


Symbaloo allows a single user to create different pages or screens with buttons. These screens called webmix are useful to separate topics and links can be shared with other users, making them public and sending the link via email. As of 2015 Symbaloo has 6 million users worldwide and mainly used as an online education resource.

PD- When Do We Have the Time?!?

With all the professional development that is readily available for certified staff; we realize that there are limited opportunities for classified staff. With that, we are very proud of making Atomic Learning available 24/7 to staff, students and their families. Atomic Learning provides technology training tutorials on 250+ software applications and ed tech tools, as well as training on in-demand career skills, such as Time Management and Effective Listening.


Yet still, we wanted to start providing/sharing additional knowledge that we felt would be useful to many. However, finding the time to do so is always the tricky part! Therefore, our goals are-

  • Share knowledge/information that will be useful
  • Provide hands-on training/interaction in an easy, fun going (non-threatening) environment within the work day (when feasible)
  • Be a resource for you as you learn new skills
  • Provide opportunity to interact with members of Technology Services and EPT (Educational Programs & Technology Dept)

Additional Dates/Times

As you know, the one thing that is constant in life is change! Therefore, please bear in mind this is a work in progress-how, when, where, what...
