Quick Techie Tuesday Update

Hi, Blog Followers!
Your email has been overwhelmed for sure over the past two weeks. So I'll make this update quick.
  • You can find the BE Remote Learning website here. It has grown a lot since we opened it last week, so check it out. The list of free tools that we have available has also grown a lot.
  • Be sure to check out the Workshop page. There are three key pieces on the calendar that I want to point out (more information on each is on the calendar on the workshop page):
    1. Student Tech Help Office Hours w/ Mrs. Simmons are being offered EVERY TUESDAY and THURSDAY from 8-9AM to provide your students a way to get help with the projects and tools they are using. I'm trying this as a way to support the teachers by supporting their students.
    2. Hallway Chats with Stephen & Friends are offered EVERY DAY from 9 to 10AM. They are hosted by Stephen Avery, one of the instructional coaches at BEMS, and gives you a way to drop in and get help with whatever you need. (If you haven't met Stephen, you really should say hi. He's super awesome!) If available, I join him in there to hang out and collaborate with him. It's a good time.
    3. Coach Office Hours are offered EVERY DAY from noon to 2PM and are hosted by me. If you need help with anything from gradebook, Google Classroom, classroom management, assignments... the list goes on... jump in and get help. I have really enjoyed hanging out with lots of folks and it has been fun making connections with folks from across the district. If needed, I can also move into a private "room" in Zoom if needed.
If I can do anything at all to support you, just let me know. I'm here for you!

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. You guys are awesome!

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:
