Apple Configurator Settings Update

I found a couple of settings that you might want to turn off to make life easier using Apple Configurator.

Thank you for attending the ChromeBook II session!

One of the great opportunities about attending conferences and webinars is sharing what is hopefully useful information with fellow staff members. It was great to have such a nice turnout at both of tonight’s ChromeBook sessions

The resources from both the Interactive Presentations session and Screencasting sessions can be found at:

Please let me know if you try any of these and if you need any assistance. I would be happy to meet with you.

Thanks to everyone who attended yesterday’s Screencasting PD!

I just wanted to thank everyone who was able to attend yesterday, I will be posting links to the video content I shared and the web sites mentioned by the end of the week. Remember that you can still sign up for any of the sessions on the district main page.

As always, if there is something you would like to go over that we can tailor to your classroom, email me for an appointment. I would love to assist.

OETC Update!

The conference has been amazing. I have a ton of content that I am organizing to try and share in a way that makes sense. Basically, I want to post things in groupings based on if they are useful for the whole staff or just particular age groupings. I am putting together a newsletter for tomorrow night. I hope everyone has been enjoying the snow days!

BTW: I have been doing some selected retweeting from the conference on my school Twitter account. If you want access to those, you can click on the Twitter link at the upper right hand corner of my page.

Also, if you want to create a Twitter account for yourself, you don’t need to post if you don’t feel comfortable. You can just follow the people or organizations that you would like to. I am planning to put together a short video describing how to do this when I return. There were a number of Middle School teachers that were interested.

As always, feel free to contact me if I can help.

Convert from the Pages App to Word

A teacher asked how to convert a Pages document from the iPad to a Word Document on her computer. I made a quick video to show some options. These steps work in other apps too, if you want to send files.
There is a YouTube link and a School Tube Link depending on where you want to view it.
