Ok I’m back for Tech Tip Tuesday, although I only have 5 minutes before Wednesday and I have to be at work at 8. Argh! Well…. Ummmm…..why can I never think in a crunch!?
I’ll make a list of quick tips and tech favs!
1. iPad mirroring. Yep! With an Apple TV box hooked to a projector, you can make yourself a modified interactive whiteboard…kind of! If mine was set up right now instead of in a pile of cables and keyboards and tech stuff I could take a picture for you!
2. Xtra Math. I just learned about this yesterday and I am totally hooked! This website allows you, for free, to make a class list, send kids to the computer to practice numerical fluency, the program calls the next kid on the list, and it sends you a report, for free. Did I mention it calls the next kid on the list, even if you have several computers running at the same time, and its free?! Seriously?! I already made a class list! I’m so excited!
3. Possible tech tip for the future…. I’ve been thinking about managing my tech by making “licenses” for the kids to earn. Like when they memorize their passwords, or learn how to troubleshoot, or something of that nature. That way there is a tech accreditation of sorts as to who knows what, and oh yeah, I have my tech license. Just a thought…
Yipes! My Tuesday is almost up!
