A little heads up... (Techie Thursday - May 16th)

Image
Hi, Blog Followers! I wanted to give you a heads up that I will be offline next week as I will be leading my first girls' Pathfinder team on their spring trip. I'm still going to send out a techie Thursday email to you, but any messages to me will be taken care of after Memorial Day. With that in mind, please make sure you book me if you'd like to connect in any way between now and then end of the year (which is coming so fast at this point). Between the trip and then laptop collection, my schedule is filling up fast. You can set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com.

Techie Thursday - May 9th

Hi, Blog Followers! Last week I spent two days at a training with Carrie Thurston and I'm looking forward to getting to work this fall with the MS teachers and help them with their data. I also met with a HS teacher this week who is already planning ahead and setting up more of his assessments online to use next year. Ready to finish the year on a high note? I'd LOVE to help! You can set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com.
As I get ready to close the books on the first year of my Techie Thursdays, I'd love feedback about what I can do to make it better for you next year. I put some ideas into the slide below, but I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please reach out to me (and then come grab something from my bag of goodies).
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.

Can you see it? (Techie Thursday - May 2nd)

Hi, Blog Followers! I don't know about you, but I am just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of this year. Wow have we done a ton! And yet there is so much more we can squeeze in. Just this week I met with EIGHT classes of 7th grade students to take them out west with Google Expeditions. What a fun way to engage students as they start to lose their momentum!

Here comes the sun... (Techie Thursday - April 25th)

Hi, Blog Followers! Here it is. Your last Techie Thursday of April! Can I help you finish out the school year in any way? How about bring in augmented or virtual reality? I'd love to connect with you to either wrap things up strong or build a good foundation for next year. Want to bounce around ideas and get outside? My appointments don't need to be in front of a computer! We can head outside and go for a walking meeting, too. I'm here to help! Remember, you can set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com.

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

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!

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!
