What's Up in the Tech World

Christmas will be here before we know it!

Lower Campus: Monday and Thursday

Upper Campus: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday (until lunch)

I will be attending a training Friday afternoon off-site. I will be meeting with 3rd grade teachers from the Huntsville Madison Private School Association to discuss technology integration.


I know we are quickly approaching the holidays. I wanted to share a little more information about some of the FREE tools we have access to so that you might think about how you can use them as you relax over the Christmas break.


I want to make sure you know that I share many different ideas with you but I don't expect you to implement all of them. You need to pick one or two that interest you and go with it. Don't be overwhelmed!


Zaption
- One of the tools on our free tool test that I shared with you early this year is Zaption. This product provides a way to embed questions in a video presentation. There is a new feature that has been added to Zaption that allows you to show the video and have students on devices (iPads, smartphones) and they answer your questions while the video is playing. I have included a video below of how it works. I am happy to help you get one set up if you are interested. The link to set up your FREE Zaption Pro account (if you haven't already) is https://www.zaption.com/reg/tooltest15 If you somehow created the free account before getting the link, you can log on and click the link to receive the FREE PRO account.
