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

Image
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!
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.


Sincerely,

Hi, Blog Followers! Google Expeditions have been going strong in the science department at the high school lately. Google also released a big update to Expeditions that makes it super easy to take students on tours that we create. I would love to create tours with anyone that is willing! If you'd like to get together to learn how your students can create a Google Expedition 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.

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!

Feel like you're missing something? (Techie Thursday for January 31st)

Image
Hi, Blog Followers! This week's Techie Thursday has a link to configure your School Messenger notifications. Truth be told, mine were set so that I missed the "plans for next year" email and a few others over the past couple weeks. Opps! I'd recommend setting up an account and then double check that everything is set how you would like it to be. I also included a couple cool ways to incorporate tech into your lessons. Interested in any of them? I am always happy to come in and co-teach with you to make it less intimidating to do something new!
This week's Techie Thursday also features another giveaway! Check out the image below for details and to access all of the links on the slide. If you have a tool you would like me to research for different options, just drop me a line. 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 …
