At this point, our first two Tech Cafés have come and gone and they were a monumental success! I have received such great feedback!
At our first meeting we had almost 15 teachers show up, and our building administrators (who rock, by the way!). We talked through the basic procedures for passing out Chromebooks, getting students logged in and walking them through a couple lessons specifically about the device. If you're interested in seeing the website our district put together for this purpose, click here. The basic check list of tasks to accomplish with students was as follows:
- Pass out Chromebooks, show power button, etc..
- Have students log in and set up their accounts.
-Some teachers were comfortable with students taking this time to set up their profile pics, others weren't.
- Use the LPS Leads site and go through the lessons: AUP (and have students complete the digital signature); Device Intro, Device Care and Digital Citizenship (Digital Citizenship instruction will probably have its own post later on because there was a lot of discussion on this topic.)
