Can you see it? (Techie Thursday - May 2nd)

Hi, Blog Followers!
I don't know about you, but I am just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of this year. Wow have we done a ton! And yet there is so much more we can squeeze in. Just this week I met with EIGHT classes of 7th grade students to take them out west with Google Expeditions. What a fun way to engage students as they start to lose their momentum! You can set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com.

As I get ready to close the books on the first year of my Techie Thursdays, I'd love feedback about what I can do to make it better for you next year. I put some ideas into the slide below, but I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please reach out to me (and then come grab something from my bag of goodies).

And, as always, you can see the tips from the past weeks by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck.


Sincerely, 
Susie Simmons

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:
