Thicker? Thinner? Different color?

I feel like the blog is a little bit of a How To lately, but as we transition to MacBooks and questions come up, I want to be sure that we all have the same information as small as it may be.

Today's "How To" walks you through how to change the color of your Smartboard markers as well as the thickness.

Project your iPad to your Smartboard with AirServer

2 weeks into school and hopefully those of you who have already switched over to MacBook's are beginning to get the hang of them.

As we venture into the next few weeks, it's likely that you will want to show your students what's on your iPad. Below you will find directions on how to use AirServer on your Mac so that you will be able to display your iPad to your SMARTboard. This is great when wanting to show students how to maneuver through an app, model directions for a project, or share various content, pictures, etc.

Malchow's Tech Bytes Sept 18-22

This week brings with it some resources for the Global Read Aloud. If you're not familiar with it, please check it out. It's a fantastic way to enjoy great literature with your students while also creating connections and collaboration opportunities outside of your classroom walls. Here are some of my prior posts about the Global Read Aloud.

Setting up your Code.org class

Are you wanting to get started with coding but forgot how to set up a Code.org class? Click on either of the images below to access the How To posters I've created to help you out. (If you are not in the Pulaski school district, these posters will still be helpful but you'll need to adjust Step 4 to the course that your district/grade level utilizes.)

I'll also be offering two Apple Core sessions on Getting Comfy with Coding where we'll go over these directions and give you time to set up your class in addition to giving you a few tips and tidbits as well as some time to dig into the curriculum and plan for your upcoming lessons. The first Getting Comfy With Coding class will be held on Tuesday, October 3rd at 3:30 in the Glenbrook library.
