Technology Updates

Week of October 16, 2010

 
 In response to a few people asking, my phone extension is 9126. 
Here is the weekly update.  Have a great weekend!

iPad Student Labs
     We are working on getting the iPad apps set up for the student labs. Have an app you know students will love?  If you would like that app added for student use please let me know through a work order.  :-)


Apple Presentation on Tuesday during the delay
     Be thinking of any questions that you would like to ask of Apple as far as iPad capabilities, questions on how to do something or apps that are the best for what you are teaching.  Come to school on Tuesday with your iPad fully charged!  Look for an e-mail from Brian on Monday with specific information on this presentation and asking for times you may have available for additional questions/training.


New Apps for the Week of October 4th

These are available free of charge to teacher iPads, for a complete listing of available apps go to Google Documents.  If you would like to request an app  to be added to the list, send a work order to “technology coach”

     Alphabet Fun- For children learning to familiarize, write, or say their ABC’s, Numbers, and Colors.


     gFlashPro- create flashcards and view cards that others have created


     Time to Learn- Time To Learn challenges young children to move the hands of a clock to randomly generated times.


-Did you know... On the app pocket phonics (the full version), on the first screen there is a tab called parent zone.  click on it and under settings, you can change the font from D'Nealian to ZanerBloser!  Very Exciting!
