It Has Been Awhile

26 Jan

Good afternoon,

I trust your semester is off to a great start. This month is nearly gone already, and we just returned it seems. Before we blink spring break will be here and testing. Oh, my!

Please remember that February is CTE month. The ACTE website has several links with information for promoting CTE. One is a video contest. The CTE logo, success stories, and more can be found at http://www.acteonline.org/ctemonth/#.VqZ3o1I2uq4. Check it out.

STEMFINITY.com is a website with many free STEM resources available. If you click the link below, you will visit the site. Areas of interest in science, technology, engineering, and math are provided obviously. What is neat is that the site provides information for Videos and Webinars, Coding and Programming, Digital Tools and Platforms, and Activities and Lesson Plans.

Click2Science is site with professional development information for trainers and directors.

I recently came across this bit of information on effective teaching practices. At this time of the year, we may need extra ideas regarding effective teaching. This article is short and to the point with providing 5 tips.

All of us need to stay in contact with our students, parents, fellow educators, and community. This next website may be of interest to many. It is called SMORE. There is a small fee attached to the program, but it is very versatile. It will allow you to create newsletters, fliers, pictures, videos, and more. Check it out.

Are you needing a friendly way to schedule appointments, calls, and such? We try Calendly. Here is the link for it.

As always, professional learning is ongoing. In particular there have been several calls and emails about endorsement training. The dates and such are still being finalized. Please keep a look on the RCU website for more information on upcoming training. Most everything will be posted by spring break. Here is the link.

If you have questions or need assistance with Canvas, please contact the Help Desk. The Help Desk may be reached at helpdesk@rcu.msstate.edu.

Have a great day!

Michelle
