Help After School

This week has shaped up to be a quiet week on the blogsite front. I've been busy setting up Apple TVs and training folks on how to use them as well as showing off how to use Google Calendar in the classroom (stay tuned for my information about that).

But I wanted to take a moment to "announce" that I will now be extending my office hours to 2:30PM on the days that I am offering them. I know that sometimes it is hard to get to me during the day, so I am hoping that this extra time slot will prove useful. You can book the time right on my website and then just let me know what you'd like me to help you with via the description. It could be to cover a topic that I've held a workshop on or it could be something unique to you. I'm here, after all, to serve you!

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:
