#TLAP Online Session

I want to clarify a few things to avoid any confusion about this session.

1. We will NOT meet face to face on June 1st or any other day.
2. This session is completely online.

3. Our first meeting is June 4th on a Twitter Chat.

Do these things before we kick off our book study on the 4th of June @ 7:00 pm.

Our online class begins the first week of June. Please purchase your book by June 1st. I am excited that the author Dave Burgess will be joining in on one of our twitter chats. Make sure you do the following before we meet the first time on twitter.



1. Create your twitter account and add me @annvega

2. Make sure you have your Google Apps for Education set up - (you will need this for collaborative documents and Google Hangouts) the directions on how to do that are:
If you were employed before October, you are already in the system. (If not email me and I'll add you.)

If you have a regular google account, click the bottom where it says to ADD AND ACCOUNT. (DO NOT CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT)

Your username is your mcallenisd.net email, for example, mine is: jennyann.vega@mcallenisd.net
Your password is: changeme

Once you have your GAFE (Google Apps for Education) account set up (you will know because instead of the google sign on the top left you will see our MISD logo) then open up a new tab and fill out the form below. Make sure to include your twitter handle.

PS. The form is restricted to only people who have a McAllen Google Apps for Education Account, so if you don't have yours set up, you can't fill out the form.
