Get Organized On Your Computer!
If any of these statements are true, this is the workshop for you! Computers should SAVE you time, not COST you time, and it’s high time you got your computers organized so that you can work more efficiently.
RSS Feeds - Bringing the Web to You!
With an RSS Feed Reader like Google Reader teachers can monitor colleague blogs, wikis, group forums, etc., track resource blogs and websites, gather research links to share in the classroom, and stay up to date on PD and industry news. Students can follow subjects or people of interest, gather research sources, follow blogs of friends, clubs and schools, and collaborate with other students in class or around the world.
This module will introduce you to the benefits of using an RSS feed reader and explain how Google Reader works-- you’ll never waste time searching again!

What's Up Doc?! Create a Document Manager Page in SchoolCenter
Are you tired of running to the copier every time a student forgets his or her handout? How many extra field trip permission slips do you have to make because you know some of them don’t quite make it from the student’s backpack to the parent’s hands? No more! With SchoolCenter’s Document Manager, you can upload all kinds of documents (over 300 different types!) to a special page within your very own site. Now, students and parents can access a copy of your syllabus, class rules, snack calendars, project directions, PowerPoint presentations, lesson notes, and more!
This module will show you how to manage categories for all of your documents, how to upload documents to specific categories or folders, how to allow moderated comments to uploaded documents, and even how to show PowerPoints right on your page.
