Tech Tip for Staff 8-18-16

Hey teachers... If your Lenovo is not working properly then an update will likely solve a lot of your problems.  There are two updates that need to run to get your machine completely up to date. The first is the Lenovo updates. You can find a tutorial HERE showing the steps for this.  The second is the Windows updates.  You can find a tutorial HERE showing steps for this.  Once these are both run, your issue will most likely be fixed.  If you need any help with these updates, please contact Nat, Cherie, or Meghann.

Hey teachers, just a quick reminder that Kahn Academy is a great resource for Math, but also for Science and History.  Check out their webpage HERE and see if there is anything that will help you with your class.  English teachers, not to be left out, please check out Web English Teacher.  This is a great resource for ideas in your classroom and to see how others are handling the current ideologies in the English Classroom.  One more that all should look at is TED.ED  This is a great resource for videos that your students would love in the classroom.
