End of the year checklists

This post is a part of our "Tech Tuesday" Professional Learning Series

What can you do to clean up your "digital footprint" to prepare for the next school year?

This school year has been a "trial by fire" type of year for most of us.  We have all been thrust into "Blended Learning" and using "The Cloud" quickly and without much experience.  There is hope at the end of the tunnel: End of the Year!!!!!

This is a chance for us to do some housekeeping with our digital footprints and classrooms.  This will help us develop systems and standards for how we organize our digital information and classrooms that will allow us to focus more on our students.  You wouldn't keep a messy unorganized classroom and storage area and try to teach around that, would you?  

To help with this, we have created 2 infographics that have simple steps with links to websites with more information.  The first infographic is an EOY checklist for Google Classroom.  The second is for Google Drive/Gmail.  Following these documents' steps will help you have a smoother digital start to the next school year.

In our next post, we will be showing you how to "download" a copy of your Google Drive.  We will also be giving some tips and information on how long your information is available if you ever have to leave our district.

In either scenario, downloading your digital data can be an intimidating task.  But now you can download Google! Well, not exactly! But you can download your very own private part of the cloud: your data from most of your Google Services.   The Wikipedia Google Takeout Page tells us, "Google Takeout was a service created in 2011 that allowed users to export their data from most of Google's services." Over the years, Google has added more services to the list. The following infographic will help you work thro

5 reasons to attend the 2021 Vartek Virtual Summit

This post is a part of our "Tech Tuesday" Professional Learning Series. Today is the last Friday of the school year!  We made it.  We're tired.  We are ready for some rest and our summer break! From my time as a teacher, I know that summer break isn't just time off.  We are thinking about our classroom design for next school year, who are students will be, and most importantly how can we be an effective teacher that will give our students the best chance at success. To help with this, we are presenting the Vartek Virtual Summit! Vartek Virtual Summit Website (remember, times on the calendar are in EST.) Because of this, summer is a great time for PD.  Starting June 8th, we are offering our 2nd annual Vartek Virtual Summit.  It will be every Tuesday in June starting June 8th from 8a-11a CST.  This year's theme is "The Turning Point of EdTech - Taking Teaching and Learning to New Heights."   I would like to officially invite you to attend!
