Episode 26 - A Quick Conversation About Student Products

Episode 25 - Getting SMARTer with Patrick Heath, ITC at West Gate Elementary

Everyone who works with Patrick knows that iOS has been the apple of his eye for the last few years. In this episode, Patrick shows off his range by taking us to school with the SMART Learning Suite. Don't worry, we get to Apple by the 18:05 mark... Some things discussed: SMART Learning Suite (teachers) - Access through Office365-Waffle-All Apps, or go to suite.smarttech.com and use O365 login. SMART Learning Suite (students) - Access through Office365, or go to hellosmart.com or classlab.com and use O365 login. Some apps/programs discussed - Chatterpix, Clips, PuppetPals, Toontastic, and Seesaw.

Episode 24 - Getting "Clever" with Digital Citizenship, or Our First Babysode

In our inaugural “babysode” we set a timer for 15 minutes and try to cram in as much info as possible… unedited. A few highlights from this episode are: Clever – How to access it, what’s in there, and should "big kids" use badges? PowerSchool is migrating to a new platform (stay tuned!) – Edulastic (for math) and Naiku may be good alternatives if you are looking for a new platform We get into the Google vs Microsoft debate again… (spoiler: no one wins) Digital citizenship week and accessing resources in Google, Common Sense Media, and Nearpod

Episode 23 - Starting the New Year with the HUB

Brian and Biz sit down with Andy Wolfenbarger and Tabitha Caldwell to talk about this year's rollout of the HUB! Andy is the Supervisor of Student Data and Information Security Services with PWCS. Tabitha is a trainer for the HUB, who works specifically with TeacherVUE. They have lots of great takeaways to share, but the top link we want to make sure PWCS teachers access and bookmark is the HUB Page on the Intranet (requires PWCS login credentials).

Episode 20 - A Conversation about Minecraft Edu with John Painter

If you've done any digging into using Minecraft Edu in Prince William County, you've probably heard of Bristow Run's ITC, John Painter. If you haven't, here's your chance! John helps us chop through all the barriers that have come up in the past and build that house of knowledge. So grab your swords and golden apples and find out what Steve and company can do for your classroom! Some notes for this episode: - To find out more about the Minecraft Education Edition: https://education.minecraft.net/ - For computers on the PWCS network, you can go to the Microsoft Store and download Minecraft Education Edition. Students can then login using their Office365 Credentials. - This episode was recorded using the Cast website (https://tryca.st/). We found it very user friendly and were only held back by the quality of the mics used. (Brian's Blue Yeti broke so he resorted to his son's gamer headset).
