Did you know? Pictures don't work in webmail signatures! If you have a picture in your signature in webmail, you might want to remove it. Otherwise it comes through like a box with a question mark!
App of the Week- Socrative
Socrative is a FREE app that turns any app based mobile device into a clicker system! You can use it to poll the class, or you can set up an activity ahead of time. You can even make it fun by creating a space race, where teams compete to answer questions correctly the fastest.
You can even use quizzes that have already been created! Click HERE for a searchable spreadsheet.
Is this app available on school devices? Yes, this app is available on all ipods and ipads at both the CTE center and at VMS.
Is there an Android version? YES! This is on android too, making it a great tool for BYOD! Students on a laptop or non-app enabled device can visit m.socrative.com in a browser to access the same content.
Are you doing something cool with technology in your class? I want to know! Email me and you could be profiled in a Weekly Geekly!
