2013-14 Staff Technology Skills Survey

Hi, Everyone.
I just wanted to give you a heads up before you get the email from Blackboard connect so that I can be sure that everyone takes the time to fill out the survey.

As we begin the new year, it's important for me to take a baseline to see where everyone is in terms of technology so that I can ensure I am offering what you want and need. It will also help me justify the position to the school board as I watch your skills grow.

Your name is collected when you fill out this form primarily to ensure that only Bonny Eagle folks can fill it out. It is also so that I can get back to you if you have follow up questions as well as to keep track of what you are attending for my own records. I want to make sure I am helping YOU out! Thank you for taking the time for me!

This is so important to me that I will likely go through and try to keep track of who hasn't done it and I will find you. I know this time of year is insane, but I really want to make sure that I'm teaching what needs to be taught this year and this is a really concrete way of helping me get started.

If you want to get a jump on it, you can fill out the form below. You have to be logged in to your Bonny Eagle Gmail account to do it. Also, I am the only one that has access to your responses. If I were to ever have to share it, I will ensure that all identifiers are removed first.

I will be sending out the same survey closer to budget time to track the changes over the year. :)

I had a teacher ask me if there was a way to hide or remove students who are no longer in your class. The answer is maybe. It depends on if they are officially dropped from your class and appearing as red in your roster and gradebook. If not, then no, you cannot remove them until they have been unenrolled from the class. If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
