Ed Tech supported Central's first annual Math, Science, and Tech Conference held during Spring break.

Digital learning day was documented at Central High School West Campus in February.

Students at Teague Elementary School described their experiences with Prodigy and ST Math.

Central Unified celebrated the Hour of Code with a contest between elementary school sites.

Year one of School 2 Home in Central Unified was well received by parents and students.  Over 300 students participated in the program, representing all school sites.

Math literacy through the use of technology was highlighted in a Central Ed Tech Team presentation at the CVELI conference in October.

Chromebooks and charging carts rolled out to every 3-6 grade classroom, 7-12 grade core classes, and 7-12 grade world language classes in the fall of 2016.

The Central Ed Tech Team changed their blog logo and left a calling card in each classroom where a Chromebook mini-lesson was presented in the fall of 2016.

Why you should archive your Google Classroom . . .

As the school year is coming to an end and you are cleaning up your physical classroom, you should take a few minutes to archive your Google Classrooms from this school year.

By clicking on the three dots in the top right corner of your Google Classroom you can quickly archive your classrooms and get ready for the 2017-2018 school year!  Not only will archiving previous year's Classrooms declutter your Google Classroom dashboard, but your current students will not need to navigate around your Classrooms next year.
During the course of next school year, if you would like to reuse a post from an archived classroom you have that option by clicking on the plus in the bottom right corner.
