Free Resources Available on Our Campus
Skype/Google Hangouts: We may not have the time or money to take our students on field trips, but Skype and Google Hangouts can bring the world to your classroom. If you want your students to interview an expert in a field that you are studying or collaborate with students on another campus, Skype and Google Hangouts can make that happen. If you have a wild idea and don't have time to follow up, just email your friendly neighborhood librarian, and let her try to do the legwork for you.
Ipads: Our iPads are loaded with the Google Apps for Education. Drive, Slides, Docs, Sheets, and (soon) Classroom. Let your students show mastery of a concept using the camera, video camera, or an app on the device. Students can easily upload their assignments to Drive or Classroom. Need co-teaching the lesson or co-planning the lesson? Groff would love to help.
Books, Books, and more Books...Let us build a cart for you to support what you are studying in your classroom. The kids can use the books for research or pleasure reading, and we can run an AR report for you if they take tests on the books. I love it when we get a two-for-one: supporting literacy and core content!
