Check out this great presentation from Sarah Barnett (@MrsBFirstGrade) on using Twitter in the elementary classroom. I heard her speak at ICE 2015, and this was very inspiring! Great resource and idea starter!
Updates... not Upgrades!
Some tips: download and install updates when you have some time, not during a student time. (i.e. at the start of lunch, at the end of the day, etc.) Some updates may take some time, like even 15-20 minutes plus a full restart, if you haven't done them in a while.
Remember: NEVER do the "upgrade" to El Capitan. This will pull your laptop out of sync with your classroom iMac.
Don't forget Java, Flash, and Adobe updates! Don't just ignore; update!
