Hi All,

A quick note about your WeVideo renewals. While the deadline isn't until August, remember that all renewals this year are for WeVideo Interactivity. When you place your order, WeVideo will switch you over to the new Interactivity version, usually within 48 hours. That means if you submit your order now, your teachers will have all summer to play with the new features so that they can take advantage of them in the fall!!

Hi All,

I know it's a crazy time of year, but I wanted to remind you about some upcoming opportunities to present at Vita-Learn events, and other events in New England. Tech Pizza is coming relatively soon, and the others are a ways out, but require a lot of advance planning, so if you want to present, you have to send in your proposals now!

Hey all, figured you also need a good "tech" chuckle at the end of the week
in early June...
In my shared office space our PK Teacher is doing Kindergarten screenings.
I overhear her laughing and saying "that's not a snake!".
Then "Hey Mr. Gervais, look at what Chloe tells me is a snake"

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for 1 or 2 distributors that could provide quotes for our
summer Chromebook refresh. We usually use Whalley Computer Associates but I
would like to get a couple more just to be certain.

Are there any suggestions out there?

Thanks,

Hello All -

My district is reengaging in the discussion around screen time per grade
level, cell phone usage in and out of school, digital citizenship, and
behavior. I am also in the early stages of collecting data about how
devices are used in classrooms, focusing on the intentionality of the usage
and software used. The bulk of this work will be done next fall.

Hi All,

As summer approaches, that means it's getting closer to our annual summer gathering, Tech Pizza! This event relies on you to help us fill in the program so that it solves your problems, and provides you the opportunity to network and collaborate with your peers!

Good Morning All,

This will be my first full summer in this position and I'm wondering how
best to handle Chromebooks over the summer. I know that last year, my
predecessor collected and tried to inventory all of the devices, with
moderate success. A lot of time was spent rewiring the Chromebook cabinets
in the elementary schools, and they tried to reset all of the devices in
the middle and high-school classes. The wiring was needed, but the rest of
it seemed pretty tedious, very time consuming, and perhaps somewhat
unnecessary.
