It's Back @ BJH Library Media Center

Tech Tuesday Time

Tech Tuesday is coming back to our school this semester. Mark your calendar for the second Tuesday of each month and plan to attend. The sessions will introduce you to some new sites and apps that make the use of technology a little more interesting and hopefully a lot more fun. We will also revisit some sites that you might currently use and see how much more they have to offer.

The district is providing a nice additional bonus for one lucky teacher. All teachers who attend 4 of the 5 sessions will be eligible to win a Chromebook. There will be drawing at the end of the May session, and the name drawn just might be yours.

January 14, 3:30 - 4:30 Session 208614

During our first session we will cover Nearpod. Nearpod describes itself as an all-in-one solution for the use of mobile devices in education. Your lessons become more engaging through interactive multimedia presentations; however, you control the students' devices. With Nearpod you can post information for students to read, embed a video, take a poll, insert pictures, and even give a test. Oh yes, Nearpod will grade it, too!

May 13, 3:30 - 4:30 Session 208622

This is our last session. We will cover as many apps and websites as we can in one hour. Naturally, there will be enough time at the end for the drawing of the Chromebook.
