Back to School Tech Help!

Optional PD sessions

The school year is fast approaching!

Pretty soon, it will be time to get your classrooms in order, laminate and label everything, and get ready for the kids to come back. Don't forget about getting yourself ready to use the technology that our school is known for. Below are some optional PD opportunities that will be available over the next few weeks. There's no need to sign up for them; just show up if you'd like to join us!

Organizing your GMail and Drive

This year, Eddie has asked that summer letters home to students be emailed, rather than sent US mail. Join us to learn how to import parent email addresses into your contacts from Genesis, so you can email all of your class parents quickly and easily. We will also cover:

  • Making folders in Gmail
  • Creating filters for emails
  • Organizing your Google Drive with folders

This workshop will take place on Thursday, August 27th, at 1:00pm in the WFS computer lab.

Updating Teacher Websites

If you're new to the district, learn how to create your class website. If you have a website, this will be a refresher class on how to make changes to it.

This workshop will take place on Wednesday, September 2nd, during one of our in-service days. It will begin at 11:30am in the computer lab.

Adding Tech to your Back to School Night

Back to School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, September 16th. It's always hard to get things ready for BTSN when it occurs so early in the year. Stop by this workshop to learn ways to incorporate technology into your presentation. Take the attention and pressure off of you and put it on the students' work and classroom experiences.

This workshop will take place twice, so that everyone has an opportunity to attend.

Session 1: Thursday, September 3rd, at 1:00 in the computer lab

Session 2: Friday, September 4th, at 9:30 in the computer lab

Hope to see you at these workshops!

Online resources will be provided, in case you cannot attend but are still interested in these topics. These resources will be sent in a separate email.
