I didn't know the iPad could do THAT!

Did you know that the iPad can now control the projector/computer in the Crow's Nest from the Cafeteria floor.  It acts very similar to a Mimio Pad in that you can control all of your computers functions while you are away from the computer.  See Brian for more information.

iPad Questions:

I will be going to an iPad conference on Tuesday, if you have any questions that you want me to ask the apple pros just let me know before Tuesday.

Smart Clickers:

Did you know that you can upload any word document to make a smart clicker assessment?  With three sets of Smart Clickers, at least one set is almost always available.  Would you like to try an assessment using clickers?  Let me know and I can walk you through the process or use your questions to create your first assessment to help get your feet wet.  :-)

Technology Blog:

I am working on creating a blog that features technology that is being used by our teachers and students.  If you have anything going on in your classrooms that is neat or out of the ordinary, please let me know.  :-)
