Using Technology in The Classroom

Quick Links

Have you been wondering where the Quick Links button disappeared to? Although our district site has a new face and a new webmaster, you can still find that spot on the web to the Quick Links on my tech site here: Quick Links


Direct address is http://ajorda9.wix.com/techtools#!quick-links/cfmn


Just save the address to your desktop for easy access. Also for those of you who have ST Math, that icon/link has been added as well. Enjoy!


IMPORTANT UPDATE: Great news! The Quick Links has been added to the bottom of the homepage, right next to the social icons. Can you say, Yay!

Technology is like a tiger. It moves extremely fast. It's powerful and fascinating but can be overwhelming if you don't know how to use it.


I love technology! I want to help. Help me, help you.
