Welcome Back! Updated Edtech Schedule

Welcome back everyone! This year is going to be a great year packed with a lot of new changes as we are now 1:1 in grades 3-9 and 11. Teachers in these grade levels will be receiving training throughout the year and so my schedule is booked usually Tuesday- Thursday. If you would like to meet with me on your planning or come in and model something to your class, I would be happy to schedule a time on Mondays or Fridays! You can book your appointment here.

If there is something you would like added to the student store, please fill out a help desk ticket with the name of the app/extension and we will check to make sure it meets technical specifications. We will update the Chromestore on Fridays. You can take a look at the BPS chromestore here.

Did you Know?

Parents of students in the 1:1 initiative can see their students Google Drive. There is a link on every school home page. It requires parents to know student username and student number.

Open Lab Hours for Teachers at Your Buildings

Starting in October, I will be holding open lab hours in each building once a month. Feel free to stop by, say hi, and bring questions that you may be having with tools such as Google Apps, Chrome, Schoology, Edmodo, Moby Max, and more. These open lab hours will be shared by your principals in your building staff bulletin. Stay tuned! Hope to see you there!
