Power edTech Weekly
A weekly bulletin of tips, tricks, and news in edtech
Week of 10/7/19
This week's edition features some information about my new favorite tool; Pear Deck, an update on a previous post on "Going Gradeless", some info on CommonLit, Step 2 for getting started with Google Classroom, and a book recommendation.
A reminder that the Worcester Edcamp is coming up on Saturday, October 19. This free event is an awesome way to connect with other educators in central Massachusetts. The focus of this Edcamp is...
...WHATEVER YOU WANT! That's the beauty of Edcamps! Have something to share; lead a session. Want to learn about something; there will be someone there that can teach you! Looking for ideas? Lots to choose from!
What are your thoughts on these possibilities?
Need some One-on-One Help?
Find a time that works for you and me. I'll come to your classroom, or you can meet in my office at the middle school. Whichever is more convenient for you!
Once you have got the basics set up for your Google Classroom, it's time to get organized. Here's a step by step video to help you through the process, and a Google Doc template to help you organize your resources.

What is an EdCamp?
Edcamp is a free professional development conference with informal sessions that are run by and for all educators, where anyone can present. The focus is on collaboration and connections, group expertise, tech tools, and instructional design. Edcamp is a professional learning phenomenon that was developed in Philadelphia, PA and has spread throughout the world.
If you love free professional development, collaborating/networking with peers, prizes and free food, then you will love Edcamp! This event is open to all educators and educational students from all districts!
