A techKnowledGE' update (week 1)

Raymond Academy's Weekly Update on all things Tech!

Welcome back ladies and gentlemen!

Welcome back to school! We are off and running on our first week of school! The first day went off without any real issues and everyone at this point should have working technology tools in their classrooms! Here is a few pictures from our parent orientation and first day of school at Raymond Academy! Enjoy!

Your assistance is needed IMMEDIATELY for your ID badges...

Majority of the photos of badges have been taken. Thursday, 8/28/2014 is the last to get your photograph taken for your badge and it is also the last day to confirm your information is correct (your name, ID #, and job title). Please click HERE to provide me with your information. It's in a Google doc so you will have to view this by logging into your Google account.

NOTE: Tab one is your information, Tab two is your photo...Please email before the end of today if you need a photo or yours needs to be edited. IDs will be mail tomorrow!

Web 2.0 Tools you can use now!

TIPs for Teachers! (Coming soon)

Have you ever wondered how to use technology applications in your classroom? You one-on-one attention? How about a how-to guide? Want to become a Tech guru perhaps? How do you create a class website and why have one? Want to use Edmodo or ClassDojo but how to get started?

Well, here's Mrs. Glass' plans to assist ALL teachers on all level meet their technology goals this school year. This year, I will introduce T.I.P. (Technology Integration Plan) for everyone! Each teacher will get a TIP to request Mrs. Glass' assistance every academic quarter or more (if you are feeling ambitious!)

The assistance can be on your time, in a pairs, small group or by grade level--you decide!

By the end of this school year, my goal is help every educator on campus accomplish AT LEAST 4 Technology goals!

More will be discussed in your next grade level meetings!
