Coordinators and IT Central are having many complex discussions concerning many important issues that will affect the I.T. landscape at SAS. I want you to know that these discussions are about the K-12 Strategic Plan including, software/hardware overload; OneNote/Sharepoint, Edublog, Outlook, Gapps, Blackboard, Mac versus PC, where does our 1:World MS program get started? Printers in every room? Extra monitors/keyboards/mice/cables galore! Adding computers to heavy backpacks! PD. etc.etc.etc. You know what I'm talking about! 

So where are we going and how do we get there? There will be a K-12 committee fot IT established as well as a separate MS one. Two individuals from the MS one will join the K-12 committee.  Please stay tuned for more information.

Please continue to help grade 7 and 8 students learn how to print properly. The library is facing many issues with this. Click on Quick Questions above and show them the video again.

Teaching Channel and YouTube celebrate National Teacher Day
Candice Meyers, Teaching Channel Head of Product Development, guest blogged on the YouTube blogto commemorate National Teacher Day and celebrate the contribution of teachers worldwide. Teaching Channel is the first teachers-focused YouTube Edu partner, seeking to capture compelling teaching lessons on video and surface them to a wider audience so that others can find inspiration. Meyers highlighted two examples of innovative teaching lessons available on the Teaching Channel's YouTube channel, showing how Alex Kajitani uses rap to explain integers and how music teacher Genein Letford trumpets Duke Ellington to explain similes. "Inspired teaching, like any great art, should be seen, so we’re pleased to share these great lessons with the world," said Meyers in her post.
