Trying new things

I am FINALLY posting again! I am trying some new things here on the blog before I go public with it.

I have added a Technology Training Preferences Survey and access to some files you might find helpful. So far, I have added the Easy Grade Pro v3.6 program install file and users manual. To use the Easy Grade Pro install, follow these directions:

  1. Right click on the link above and choose 'Save Target As...'
  2. Choose a location to save the file and proceed with download (could take a couple minutes)
  3. Open the Zip archive or extract the files to a location on your computer
  4. Run the Setup.exe file by double-clicking on it
  5. Follow the installation prompts
As I come up with other files, I'll add them. If you have files we might want to add, please let me know!

New Blog and Blogger

Welcome to the Perris Elementary School District Technology Blog. This is the first blog I have ever created! I hope to use this area to keep the teachers in PESD up-to-date with technology items and websites that I find as I go through my day. Please feel free to subscribe to this blog and I will try to update it daily ... well, more like 1-2 times a week.

I am preparing to visit most of the schools and present a brief "refresher" on our district website, email, and accessing OARS.

Please visit Garmon's blog at http://www.mrestes.blogspot.com/ to see an example of how one of our district teachers is using a blog for his class.

For ideas on how you can use a blog for your class, visit http://edublogs.org/10-ways-to-use-your-edublog-to-teach/

If you haven't visited our district website, please do. It's at http://www.perris.k12.ca.us/

Please feel free to leave comments so I can make this work for you!
