The Big Guy in the Bow Tie Weekly 12/1

Your Newsletter To Give You Tech Tips, My Locations for the Week, and More

Hello, Hello I am David Your New Tech Coach

You will start receiving this email on a weekly basis in order to share with you tech tips, tricks, and my calendar for the week. Eventually, we will also share success stories so you can see how technology is transforming other classes at your school.

This Weeks Success Story

This Week's Success Story is from a certain Middle School out in Alpharetta. Right before the Break, I had the unique opportunity to do a math review in class with Nearpod. The Teacher had never seen Nearpod, and both the students and the teacher loved it!. The Teacher loved it so much that she created one herself and encouraged others at her school to do the same!

Tech Tip of the Week : Communicate in the Way Most Due Today

The Goal of the Tech Tip of the Week is to get you interested in a topic. Please contact me if you would like to implement.

Let's face it, Most people today communicate through text. Teachers need a way to do it safetly and effectively. Remind lets you do that. Remind is an app that lets you send text reminders without either side seeing the others phone number. You don't even text from you text messages on your phone. You text from the Remind App.  If your in high school, this is great to use with students. In younger grades could be a great way to communicate with parents

My Mission

My entire mission at your school is to take your technology use to transformative. We want students to be able to create, and to have an education that is tailored to their needs. Are you going to be able to do this right away?  No, I am here to help hold your hand through those baby steps in order to let you do that. We can handle my help to you in one of three ways.

1. I can come in and do model lessons where we then progress to letting you do some of the same activities

2. I can take projects or assignments you are trying to do, and I can redesign them to up the choice factor and add the tech

3. I can kick you some ideas, and then I can follow up.
