The 3-2-1. Tech @ CSD: News & Tips for Teachers

Today is Sunday, December 4, 2016. Two more weeks! Don't let them rush by in a blur. Slow it down enough to enjoy the kiddoes around us everyday. (This is the last 3-2-1 for 2016!)

On these pages, you'll find:

  • a weekly status update on the TOP3 concerns of the week,
  • 2TIPS to help things work a little better in your classroom, and
  • oneIDEA to consider about technology and teaching.

This week's TOP3.

  • I'm still waiting on a piece of equipment you said you'd deliver. My schedule has fallen apart completely over the last several weeks. I do have a couple of last items to deliver as replacement devices. I will be at 565 on my regular schedule this Friday morning and will update a couple of you then. Topics on the list: an undelivered teacher ChromeBook or two, unresolved projector issues/unmounted monitors & AppleTVs, and connection problems in a couple of spots in the elementary school.
  • I can't find a solution from the 3-2-1 you offered a couple of weeks ago. Don't forget; I'm maintaining an archive of previous issues. You'll find the link to the archive at the end of this (and every) issue of the 3-2-1.
  • Are you EVER going to finish the Web site revisions? I hope. We're getting close and really think that going forward much of the updating will happen by you content providers on the Google Drive in the form of PDF updates. I will make time at the start of the new year to visit with the folks who met with me this summer in advance of the relaunch to revisit plans for keeping information current. Stay tuned.


  • I've just finished my Santa Hat Chex Mix project for the day. I'm fresh out of tips.
  • But here's more reading on how to handle iOS calendar spam invites from CNET, as well as a link you'll want to bookmark. Welcome to the new CSD Tech magazine Tech4Teachers. If you are a FlipBoard and tech enthusiast please contact me, and I will add you as a contributor!


An IDEA of note.

Have you seen FlipBoard? Take a look at this really neat online content aggregator. It's a eye-pleasing way to gather up credible content and great reading from around the Web and have it all curated for you in magazines that reflect your interests. Check FlipBoard out at:

As promised, here's a look at how the Internship and Independent Study students at HS are curating a magazine to allow the rest of us in the school community to peer over their shoulders and get a glimpse of what ideas intrigue them!

Don't forget: wired pcs and laptops, CSD.local domain, wireless or wired Internet connection, etc. AND SEND A SCREENSHOT!!!!!!

Tech Team Students are available for triage and diagnosis ONLY. Please do not tempt them to make changes to your device! They remain on provisional licenses only!

See you next week!
