We have about 230 students in our high school marching band. The band teachers have run into some issues with students uploading videos to Canvas, mostly due to the size of the file exceeds 500 mb.   This is their process - Kids go home and have to record themselves playing and marching. Teacher then opens speedgrader to watch, give feedback… (Show more)

Our district only has a handful of completely online teachers. I am not talking about those folks. How do you approach the vast majority of classroom teachers who meet face-to-face with their students but are starting to provide a blended learning classroom via Canvas?   Do you look at the percentage of content within versus without the entire… (Show more)

Having just delivered some PowerPoint training to students about making their presentations more effective, I thought I'd take some of my own medicine and start with a * bang * - hence the title of the piece which might have brought you here looking for something a little more provocative!   Now that you are here, why not read on?   I am moving… (Show more)

As I start a new school year in a new school with a new staff and new set of Tech Guidelines... I'm finding that I am faced with many challenges this year.  All of which I'm excited to take on as I help move my new district forward.   What are your big challenges this year and how are you looking to overcome them?     CC: Scott Dennis

On my way to work I go past several schools and notice the different School Visions emblazoned on flags and gateways. It seems that over the past decades the trend has been to display school visions, mission statements and values for all to see.

WARNING - THIS IS QUITE A LONG POST BUT IT HAS LOTS OF PICTURES! In my school we are very fortunate to have a 1-1 device model based on the Microsoft Surface Pro. All staff, teaching and support, have a device and this device is the same as the one used by the students. We are big users of OneDrive and Office365 and make good use of the… (Show more)
