Monday eLearning Missive

December 15, 2014

Ho Ho Ho...

One week to go! I hope that you've been put on the nice list this year and that Santa brings all the items on your wish list.

By the end of this week I will have been around to each of the elementary schools to introduce using Google Forms for tech enhanced item practice in your classroom. If you have any questions while you're making your first form. Don't hesitate to reach out. Remember these don't have to be huge tests but rather quick assessments.

Schedule December 15-19

Monday: AIS Diamond

Tuesday: AIS First AM, AIS Diamond PM

Wednesday: AIS First

Thursday: Caze

Friday: Flex (Send me your requests!), Coaches Meeting PM

Photo Challenge

EVSC is holding a weekly photo challenge for teachers to capture the happenings of their classrooms. This week our topic is:

'Twas the Week Before Break...

Please submit any photos from the week by:

  1. You can share via Instagram- Simply post your Instagram photos using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Feel free to add other hashtags as well to indicate the theme (e.g. #Selfie), or add more information to the caption to help tell the story.
  2. You can share via Twitter- Post your photos to Twitter using the hashtag#EVSCstory. Again, we invite you to add other hashtags, including some of our EVSC hashtags like #evscchat. You can also include our Twitter handle (@evscicats) to ensure we see your pictures as soon as you post.
  3. You can share via Facebook- Visit our ICATS Facebook page, click the Message button in the upper-right corner, and in the text of the message give us your name, school, and the theme for the week. Be sure to attach the photo by clicking the Add Files button. While you are there, we’d love it if you liked our page
  4. You can share via Google Drive- If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through Google Drive. Use this link to access our shared folder. You will need to then click the blue Open in Drive button. Then drag your photo into the window, or click the red upload arrow in the upper-left to search for your photo and click Open. It would help us if you would name your photo with the week’s theme and your name and school.
