Just a reminder that labs are still closed through next week. Even if the lab is not used in the afternoon for testing according to the schedule, the computers are still in testing mode and can't be used for anything except testing. There is 1 computer in Lab C that is not in testing mode if needed for color printing when testing is not happening in the lab.
These will start the week AFTER Milestones. A schedule will go out NEXT WEEK in Tech Tidbits.
BYOD day will be Friday, April 28. A letter will go home THIS Friday in Friday folders. We will have a least one activity per grade level to use with devices like a Kahoot or quizlet etc. You, of course, can do any of your own activities and are not required to do what we create.
We hope this day will be a fun way of incorporating more technology into your teaching day and give us an idea of what the students have.
