Elementary Technology Newsletter

September 2014

Welcome Back!

I am so happy to have everyone back this year. I know this is going to be a great year. Remember that I am here to support you with your technology needs, so please don't hesitate to ask for help.
There is a FREE technology conference on October 18th (Saturday) in Aldine. Click on the title above to go to the site to register. They already have their sessions listed and it looks like a lot of good stuff. I know it is on a Saturday, but it is FREE and you don't have to plan for a sub :). I know several of you registered last year, but there is still time to register if you haven't yet.


GradeCam will allow you to create scantrons with up to 10 multiple choice questions and grade them by placing the paper under your document camera. Watch the video to see how it works.

Google Tip

Google drive features add-ons for docs and sheets. There are many more than what is featured in the video. There is even one (Flubaroo) that will grade quizes that were made using Forms. Need help or want to learn more? Just ask :)

iPad Tip

Having students create projects using iMovie is a great way to reach those higher level Blooms. This site has some PDF templates to help students plan out their movie before they start creating it.
