Media and Techno Eagle Updates

Your EDHS connection for media and technology resources.

Wow! Can you believe it is April!

Wow! Spring Break and come and gone and now we can see the end of the year in sight! That means that we will be buckled in for the long haul to the end of the school year. Remember as we get closer to the end of the year, if you find equipment in your rooms that you no longer use or need, please let us know in the Media Center ASAP, so we can pick that up.

Chromebook Add-Ons Worth Checking Out!

EDHS Social Media

Don't forget that we are looking for pictures, student work, announcements, upcoming activities and more to post on our website, FB and on Twitter. Please let us know in the Media Center when you have things going on. If you take pictures on your iPad or phone, you can email them to me so that we can post them. We can't post if we don't know what is happening and I know that we have some awesome things happening in our classrooms.

If you are on Facebook or Twitter and post something happening at EDHS use the hashtags #EDHSEagles and #DCSschoolSPIRIT.

FREE Audiobooks all Summer Long!!!

Audiobook Sync is an audiobook program that has been around since 2010. Each summer they give away 2 FREE audiobooks a week. This year they have scheduled 15 weeks worth of great titles from May 5th - August 17th!!! That is 30 FREE audiobooks! There is a mix of contemporary titles and classics. These are for personal use, so please encourage students to download titles and download them for yourself as well. All of the audiobooks download using Overdrive. Once a week passes you will no longer be able to download the prior titles, so make sure you download them each week!
