@your Gator Learning Commons
For GHES Teachers - - Oct 2016
A few things going on.....
What a great resource! If you haven't heard the benefits, here are just a few:
~One login and password for all databases
~All databases housed in one location with seamless access
~I can set up groups for you for specific relevant resources for your lessons/units with easy access for your learners
What should you do to get started:
1. If you haven't had your learners download the Mackinvia app/extension, please have them download it on their iPads or Chromebooks.
2. If I haven't done a lesson with your students on how to use Mackinvia, schedule a time with me and I'll show you and/or teach your kids how to access it.
Global & Real World Connections

Great job, GHES! These are just some of the ways we've connected. If these connections spark an idea of a way you would like to connect to others outside the walls of our school to enhance your curriculum, just share your needs with me!
