So close we can feel it! (Techie Thursday - April 11th)

Image
Hi, Blog Followers! Holy smokes. Can you feel that? It's the sweet relief of a well earned vacation coming right up. So this week's Techie Thursday is focused on tips just in time for the down time from four podcast episodes worth a listen to a couple tip lists to do some digital spring cleaning (both for school and personal life). Sitting in the airport? Download the podcast episodes and relax! I hope that you find this week's slide informative and helpful.
Remember, you can set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com. I'd love to connect with more teachers! I can even help plan lessons to keep kids engaged through technology. I know it's an uphill battle!
And, as always, you can see the tips from the past weeks by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck.

Welcome to April, Blog Followers! (Techie Thursday - April 4th)

Hi, Blog Followers! This week a teacher commented how disorganized their digital life felt and how neat mine must be. Truth be told, my physical spaces are a mess. But I do like to keep things organized! If you'd like help with spring cleaning and organizing your digital life/classroom, let me know! I am a big fan of helping folks work more efficiently and having an organized digital workspace can be a key piece to that!
If you'd like to get, just set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com. I'd love to connect with more teachers!

Hi, Blog Followers! Last week I share ideas on how to reduce paper use and I enjoyed meeting with a few of you about it this week. Did you know that I'm here to help you convert paper assessments to an online platform? I'll show you how but, once you understand the process, I'll even help you do the work! I know it can be overwhelming so lets teamwork it so we can get you up and running faster.
If you'd like to get together to work towards using less paper or chat about any of the other resources I've shared, just set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com. I'd love to connect with more teachers!

Happy spring, Blog Followers! (Techie Thursday for March 21tst)

Hi, Blog Followers! This week's theme comes to you by request from a teacher at the high school. Did you know that our printing costs actually went UP at the high school when we got 1:1 laptops? With the budgetary concerns, I'd highly recommend thinking about how you can put your technology to better use and reduce your paper use at the same time. If you'd like to get together to work towards using less paper or chat about any of the other resources I've shared, just set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com. I'd love to connect with more teachers!

Blog Followers, it's a productivity focused Techie Thursday! (March 7th)

Image
Hi, Blog Followers! Today's message is focused on productivity thanks to several conversations I have been having about our connected lives. You might even want to share some of the resources with your students to help them manage their time better. I recently subscribed to a filtering program for my house and it has helped to make us more aware of how much time we are spending looking at screens. 
If you'd like to get together to learn about any of these things, plan a lesson together integrating more technology, get some guidance with setting up your GP/HOW check in on Synergy, or get non-evaluative feedback just set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com. And anyone who makes an appointment gets to pick a prize from my staff of stuff!
