Time to Learn!

Let the learning begin! We will be attending the 32nd TCEA Annual Convention & Exposition this week.  TCEA’s five-day convention is one of the largest educational technology conventions in the nation and the largest in Texas. There will be astounding professional development, hands-on and peer-to-peer learning opportunities, exploration of new trends through interactive learning environments, in-depth presentations from educational technology experts, and inspiring keynotes. If you want to know more about a specific topic, email your Instructional Technologist by Tuesday. We will be glad to gather information on that topic for you. Also, check our blog during the week for new and exciting information learned at the convention.

Websites of the Week:  Looking for resources for Black History month?  The first site is hosted by the library of Congress and the second site is from the Smithsonian. Put the power of primary sources to work in the classroom. Browse ready-to-use lesson plans, student activities, collection guides and research aids.

Tips of the Week:

·        Are you fed up with getting bugged by messages asking if you'd like to join this or that Wi- Fi network? Then head to Settings, Wi-Fi, and turn off Ask to Join Networks. You can still join any network that will have you from this same screen, it just won't bug you constantly when the opportunity arises.

·        Double-clicking the Home button shows you all the apps that are running on your iPad.  They are displayed in a bar along the bottom of the screen. Hold down an app until it jiggles, then press the red minus to close the apps. Just swipe the screen downwards to remove this bar.
