Who Does What?

I had a new teacher inquiry about who does what within the technology department and when they should be coming to me. First off, I am not really a part of the technology department. Like you, I report to the principals in both buildings and I still have my iObservations to do. So, although I do work with them a lot (and who wouldn't want to with how awesome they are?), I am sort of my own little department. In general, here are some pointers to help you figure out who you need to go to:

Tech Help Ticket
  • How do I use....
    My interactive whiteboard, Infinite Campus, software, etc.
  • I want to find out how to do...
    If you have a vision for a project or assignment that you want to do, just let me know and I'll help you figure out a solution!
  • Best Practices
    Struggling with how to integrate tech in to your classroom? I'm your girl!
  • This is broken!
    Projector, printer, computer...
  • I forgot my password.
    To IC, SubFinder, Gmail, etc.
I do not have access to help tickets!

If you are in doubt and you contact me, I'll tell you if you should do a tech help ticket. I'm the one that will teach you how to use it and tech help tickets will help you fix it when it's broken.

As always I strongly recommend trying to problem solve first because often the solution is easy and quick to come by if you look for it. If I come up with a way to fix a common problem, I'll put it out here on my blogsite and you can either search for it or use the topic links on the right hand side.

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:
