Getting Help

If you are in need of any assistance regarding any edTech issue, please reach out. Also, I’ve updated the Students & Families help center on gorams.tech/help so you can direct anyone needing help with at-home learning there to get the assistance they need.

This Week’s Quick Tips!

StudySync Tips

I put out a few resources to help with StudySync from both a student's and teachers perspective. These include:

Organize your Bookmarks

A helpful tip for both teachers and students. Watch this tutorial on creating folders and managing bookmarks in Google Chrome.

Formative Assessment

Being able to formatively assess student understanding is especially important in remote or hybrid learning situations. Using Zoom, Google Classroom, Mentimeter, and Kahoot are some great ways to easily gauge how your students are doing within each and any lesson. Check out this blog post to learn more.

Zoom Tips

Students at the middle and high school level have been assigned Zoom accounts and should be logging into each meeting with their NPS Google account.

It all starts with a conversation. You have to let go of your assumptions so you can listen with an open mind and understand what’s actually important to them. That way you can build something that makes their life better. Something they actually want to buy." • Christian Wiediger - "YouTube on a phone" • Marvin Meyer - "untitled image"
