SHOUT OUT!!

Lucy Lopez (Elementary) - Mrs. Lopez's 2nd graders are using their Chromebooks for their Spelling Tests!!! LOVE this! (See photos above!)


Kaleena Mayo (Elementary) - Mrs. Mayo says, "We made Water Cycle projects and I gave them the opportunity to choose their group and their outlet. I was impressed with the options. Without suggesting it, one of my students asked if he could use Google Slides. One wanted to design a tshirt! It was fun to watch their creativity stand out." (See photo below for the t-shirt design!!)


Deleasha Brawley (Elementary) - Mrs. Brawley just did THIS!!! Check out her Tweet: "Just entered #Brawley'sTeam in the#LexiaLearning usage contest! go.lexialearning.com/usage-contest @DISDTech @ElemJacks"

SMORES

Tuesday Tech Talk is built using Smore.com. I use this format for many of our trainings. If, by chance, you have missed a training or haven't been able to attend, I have put all of the training Smores on our website. You can find them all HERE. If you have any questions about them, please let me know.
