How fast are you? Ok, how fast is your internet??

With a week left in October, it'd be awesome if we got more teachers (and students) at our schools to click on the link in the message below to do a free one minute SchoolSpeedTest! It only takes a minute and we'd love to get more data. Thank you for your help!

As we continue our October SpeedTest Month, we'd like to thank all of you that have participated in the School Speed Tests.  So far, we have had over 60% of Maine districts take part, with some schools performing over 150 tests so far!  However, we still have some districts and schools that have yet to take part.  The good news is that there is still plenty of time to do so!  All we're asking is that each school in your district perform 10-20 tests before the end of the month!

As a reminder, participating schools will receive SchoolSpeedTest data that will help find network bottlenecks, support network planning, demonstrate the need for increased connectivity/hardware funding and support your district readiness for the next generation of student assessments.

In order to take part, any person on a school network can visit http://partners.schoolspeedtest.org/maine.html to take a free one-minute SchoolSpeedTest and add data to our inventory. These SpeedTests can be completed by students, staff, faculty or administrators, and can (and should) be done throughout the school day.  Tests can be performed on computers with a wired or wireless internet connection.  To make sure that the data you receive is most valuable for your district, try to perform the test on machines that your students, faculty and staff are most likely to use during the school day.

Once the Maine SchoolSpeedTest month ends, your district will receive a report showing the bandwidth available (maximum, minimum and average) in each school, as well as per-student bandwidth, that can help locate bottlenecks and support network planning.

If you want more information, and were unable to attend one of the informational webinars we hosted, recordings of the webinars are available online atwww.mlti.org/speedtest/.
If you would like materials to promote the program within your school(s), you can request them from EducationSuperhighway at http://partners.schoolspeedtest.org/maine-race-of-champions.html.

If you have any other questions, please contact Thomas Cosgrove at thomas.cosgrove@maine.gov

Thank you all for your support and continued participation in this project.

Hide Dropped Students in Infinite Campus

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:
