Would you like an easy, user-friendly teacher resource that helps you navigate all the new technology we are teaching? In case you weren’t aware, there is a GREAT resource for Olathe teachers on O-Zone called OPS EdTech. The link is: http://departments.olatheschools.com/opsedtech or you can find it on O-Zone under T&L.
Find the best apps, programs and resources for a particular type of learning, such as Digital Storytelling, Math, or Assessments. Just click on the “Tech Tools” tab and see the list that will link you to all the resources.
Have students learn a skill like improving their organization, creating a timeline, or creating cartoons. Click on the tab for “Teacher Resources” and discover all the resources that can help.
Browse the “Training & PD” tab for all the different ways our district offers technology training (for professional development point), such as “Appy Hour” and “Lunch and Learn.”
If you scanned this email quickly thinking, “Yeah, yeah, maybe I’ll check this later if I have time,” I would encourage you to squeeze 5 minutes in this month where you can click on the link and see what it has to offer. It is EASY, and it may become your new favorite resource!”
