1/29 Bristol day! iPad Training.

Spent the day at Bristol Elementary.  I was there to:

  • See science or social studies lessons in action
  • Help when/where you need it (not necessarily Sci/SS)
  • Answer any technology questions you may have/want
  • Help you log on to the NEW Curriculum server
  • Have curriculum conversations about Science or Social Studies
  • Share MAP data
  • Talk about the Next Generation Science Standards
  • Build stronger relationships.
  • Be supportive and collaborative!

See which rooms I stopped in here: https://docs.google.com/a/wgcloud.org/document/d/1uGl49-26yR172YDYT1xRYzt56WVk9fKrZR8YeSGMuEc/edit

I saw 4th grade working on Circuits:

I then started to update my iPad for our after school session.  After downloading software, I ran into trouble...

I was unable to update due to ports being blocked on the WG network.  I figured this out using apple's support communities: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4467602?start=0&tstart=0

This made me miss James' Kindergarten class due to having to run to Bread Company to use their Wifi to update and restore software.  I went back there later...

After updating went back to Bristol.

Saw 5th grade REVIEW game:

Helped students in 4th grade hook up circuits.

 Played in Kindergarten to make a secret decoder necklace (Awesome!):

Met with Gifted ed Teacher to discuss Scratch and found some great resources:

I also shared my blog post on how I used scratch and other cool things in my 20% time in my classroom:  http://coachinandout.blogspot.com/2012/05/take-day-off-20-time.html

I met with a Kindergarten teacher about changing her password on her apple ID.  Used this resource: http://support.apple.com/kb/HE36  Then learned how to change the apple id on the ipad here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2693812?start=120&tstart=0
