  1. Tech Tuesdays: Getting Tech to Teachers in Small Groups Stony Evans, LMS, Lakeside Jr High Rachel Shankles, LMS, Lakeside High School

  2. Basic Information • One hour in length • Basically introduce, show samples, let them try to use the tech tool hands-on • Use a wiki to store all the handouts and links to be used • Make a Google form as the Evaluation tool for last few minutes of the class • Door prizes are always a hit

  3. Classes: • Glogster: Interactive Posters • Google Docs • App----solutelyIpads for Beginners • App---solutelyIpad Apps for the Curriculum • Movie Magic: Photos to Movies using Animoto and Photostory3 • Nettrekker Jewels • Online Databases for the Curriculum • Poster Printing for Classroom Projects • Project Based Learning • Smartboard Treasure Hunt • Technology Zoo---Gadgets, Games, Gurus • Video on Demand: Safari Montage • Outlook

  4. Next Spring • TeacherWeb • Pinnacle • Wordle • Edmodo.com • Prezi • Avatars • Digital Storytelling with ipads or websites • Flip Video Basics and Beyond • QR Code Scavenger Hunts • Customize your list to your teacher needs

  5. Why Work Extra Hours? • Build rapport with faculty • Get faculty ready for the tech part of Common Core • Make faculty more computer literate in small group setting—they come because they want to, not because they are made to get the hours • The school pays us extra but not what we are worth (LOL) • The district gives PD credit for attendance and uses their signup system for registration--- My Learning Plan • Teachers from around the county hear by word-of-mouth and some who aren’t working and need hours • It is free PD; it is short and to the point; one concept at a time

  6. Caveat • Make sure the video clips and websites are not blocked on teacher accounts • Sometimes you have more rights than the regular classroom teacher • Nothing can ruin a one hour workshop like not being able to play the intro YouTube video • Make sure you have guest logins for those that show up who are not in your district

  7. Our idea came from Tony Vincent!
