Classroom Device Management through Powerschool

It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you assign devices (laptops, iPads, desktop computers in computer lab, etc.) to your students based on their numerical order from a list you can print easily in Powerschool Reports. That way, every time a student gets a device, they get the same numbered device, and inappropriately used devices can be more easily traced to the perpetrator! :-)

Tech Apps TEKS

The core subject areas in grades K-8 include the Tech Apps TEKS (updated 2012-13).

Teachers need to include applicable Tech App TEKS into their lesson plans in Forethought/Eduphoria, implementing the Tech App TEKS through their ongoing lesson designs.
