3 Things to Make You More Awesome
EduCanon - Yes They Are Changing Their Name & Please Log In Like This
Another issue that has popped up (I sent out an email about this earlier) is that students are logging into EduCanon (playposit) without logging into their Google accounts first. PLEASE make sure that students login as show in the video below (START AT 4:54 TIMESTAMP) or two accounts are created for them which causes confusion since the student exists twice! At the end of this nine weeks I asked EduCanon (playposit) to delete all student accounts that are not associated with a Google account for us.
To see how STUDENTS should log in GO TO 4:54 TIMESTAMP in the video below.
February PD is NEXT WEEK! AHHHH!!!
Google Maps - At TCEA 2016 this year I was overwhelmed by all of the classroom uses for Google Maps. I had NO IDEA the extent to which teachers use Google Maps in their classrooms. It is truly amazing, and it's NOT just for social studies teachers!
Google Read & Write - ELAR teachers have already have the opportunity to be trained in this SUPERB Google extension! All HMS students and teachers have access to Google Read & Write (a paid extension for teachers) and the tools it gives us are just wonderful! No matter what subject you teach, you will be able to take advantage of Google Read & Write
