Many Cougars are using technology to impact student learning, and many of them have embraced the iPad that the district has distributed in the past few weeks. Mr. Derksen is rolling along with Doceri and has inquired about how to take the iPad to a whole other level. It will be fun to work with him and the math department as time goes on. Mrs. Cronin is doing an outstanding job of communicating with her students via Remind101, a free online service that allows teachers to text their students without needing their information or handing out teacher contacts. If you haven't checked out Remind101, it's about time to get onboard! If you have a smartphone (or an iPad), you can also text your class from your device using the free app. Now that's pretty exciting.
Another teacher doing solid work in her room was Mrs. George-Ross. As we showed up unannounced in her room full of AP students, she was using the iPad to navigate her presentation to the class. While we were introducing ourselves, Mrs. George-Ross gave us a brief summary of how she's been using her iPad for instruction, including calendar breakdowns for her students, presentations, and Doceri. We are really excited to see the products that Mrs. George-Ross facilitates from her room.
Thank you and have a great day!
