New Chapter & Welcome

It has not been made official yet, but I'm working on getting a leg up on what should be rubber stamped next week. This school year I will be starting a new chapter in my educational career by taking up the roll as the technology integrator for Bonny Eagle High School and Middle School. It will certainly be a big change from the past 7.5 years when I have been the graphics teacher at the high school. But I am so excited to get started and am really looking forward to it.

I will be using this blog as a way to share information about integrating technology in to your classroom at Bonny Eagle. I will post notes from my workshops, passing along information about PD opportunities available to you outside of school, and just about anything else that is relevant. There are a lot of exciting changes coming to our district this year and this is just one of them.

I look forward to getting to know the staff at both schools soon.

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:
