Break Into Summer PD

Break Into Summer PD was an online choice based professional learning opportunity that we offered over the summer. If you are interested in earning your summer PD badge, it's not too late! Summer doesn't officially end until September 21, so the summer course is available until then. Choose the topic, complete one activity, share in Schoology, and earn a badge. We will send your badges to you when you complete an activity!

#iPadAcademy Chat

This is year two of our teacher led #PadAcademy Twitter chat. The chat allows us to have an online conversation, share ideas, and be inspired. Our #ipadacademy chats are held monthly on the second Tuesday at 8:00 PM CST.

Our first #iPadAcademy chat of the year is Tuesday, September 10, 2019 from 8:00-8:30 PM.

Attend one chat and earn a badge for your lanyard! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to your building tech coordinator.

The archived chats can be found here.

Hashtags Telling Our Story

One of the most powerful parts of Twitter is the hashtag! It connects people, ideas, and creates communities within Twitter. It is a unique way for our teachers and administrators to share the amazing things happening in our schools, classrooms, clubs, teams and organizations. Our district hashtag, #bpsne, continues to grow and is becoming a powerful tool that we can leverage as a district to connect all of our teachers, students, parents, and community members. We encourage you to continue sharing the great things happening in your classrooms. Here is a list of all of the Bellevue Public School educators on Twitter. Let's create the 2019-2020 Bellevue Public Schools story together!

Tweet Time--Tweets From Those You Know

Use Twitter to connect with others from near and far! If you are someone who is already tweeting, remember to tag your tweets with #bpsne so more teachers can see what is happening in your classroom. Sharing is the name of the game! Remember there are lots of great chats to explore to connect with others in your content area. Just pull up the hashtag and enjoy the conversation.
