ITLS Newsletter

March 6, 2015

Announcements

It’s time to show off! Here is the link to a folder where you can upload videos for the League of Innovative Schools. Please upload your videos by March 16 so Laura’s Nerd Herd can compile them.
Hwy 21 Presenters Needed: Our 7th annual Highway 21 Conference will be here before you know it. We want YOU to present at this year’s conference! Come share your best practices and collaborate with other educators. Presentations for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level users all welcome. For more information, click here!
Addition to the Digital Literacy Matrix: The CCSS Math Standards have been aligned to our Digital Literacy Matrix. The last column at each grade level now shows these alignments. (Please note, K-2 CCSS Math standards do not align with the Matrix and have been left out intentionally.)

Resources

Destiny Tip of the Week: If you want to add multiple pages of search results to a Resource List, here's an easy way:

  • Create a Resource List (Catalog tab\Resources List\Add List

  • Do the search (Catalog tab\Library Search)

  • Pick the Resource List you created for Selected List (on the far right)

  • Choose Show All (on the far right)

  • Click on the Add Page button

All of the search results are now in that Resource List.

From Your Peers

Disclaimer: Thanks to everyone who has been so willing to share resources and ideas. We have tried to consolidate your great work in this newsletter in an effort to give you an easy way to track back and find what your peers have suggested. Although we are using the newsletter to distribute many different ideas, we have not taken those through any type of formal approval process. We have not contacted IT to determine whether the tool(s) and/or resource(s) meet their standards nor have we obtained input from district content leaders. Please know that as we share your ideas and suggestions we do so as part of an effort to make your jobs easier, but those resources and suggestions are not "officially" part of any Adams 12 curriculum. The approval/"sanctioning" process will be ironed out in the near future, but for now everything we include in this newsletter are ideas and suggestions for your consideration. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Julie.
