What's Up in the Tech World

March is almost here!

Can you believe that February is almost over? It is hard to believe my youngest will be graduating in a few short months.

I will be at Lower Campus on Monday and Thursday and at Upper Campus the remainder of the week. I have several things for you this week. Many weeks it is very difficult to limit myself on all the great information I want to share but I really do try to only provide the best or most important.

I have included a blog post about Digital Writing Journals. I really enjoyed reading the ideas in this post. I especially like that she describes how this can work in a classroom that is not 1 to 1.

The second link below will take you to the registration for an online seminar on Chromebooks. We are expecting a shipment of 64 Chromebooks in the next couple of weeks. They will be stored in carts similar to the iPad cart (with much better cord management). There is no cost for the webinars (they go on throughout the day) and you can view some and not all. You might be interested in signing up to learn more about Chromebooks.

I am also doing a series of Podcasts for my Graduate class and I have chosen to talk about Chromebooks. I will link these podcasts on the teacher tech page.

Science teachers - Check out the link to a website that will create an animation of the jet stream.
