Washington Tech Tidbits

Washington School - December 1, 2014

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a relaxing week off and a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Classroom Management in a 1:1 Environment

Managing a 1:1 classroom isn't always easy. Back in September, all 3rd-5th grade teachers attended a session on Hapara and Google Classroom. Hapara gives teachers an in-depth look into their students' Google Drive accounts and Google Chrome web activity. It is also capable of sending out documents and other files to students' Drives. Google Classroom is a tool that helps teachers manage and distribute assignments and promotes collaboration and discussion! If you would like more information or want to see the presentations from September, please click below. I'm always happy to help, if you need a refresher!
