For the 2017-18 school year, teachers in Granite School District will receive a printed set of “TIP Cards” — Technology Integration Progress Cards. Designed to be a quick desk reference, they provide instructions and tips for classroom technology tools and digital learning resources. Arranged into three levels of difficulty and expertise, the initial set of 32 cards covers basics like troubleshooting the classroom sound system and setting up Gradebook, as well as intermediate and advanced topics like growing your professional learning network through social media and enhancing a lesson plan with augmented reality tools.
The cards include short URLs that lead to TIP topic pages on our department web site. These pages expand beyond the quick helps of the cards by providing video and/or written tutorials for district tools, as well as curating many of the best digital learning resources available to teachers and students. Both the cards and the topic pages will be added to throughout the school year as new tutorials, tools, and resources are created and provided. School technology specialists and library media educational technology specialists may also add school-specific TIP cards to your collection.
Once you receive the cards, please keep them handy at your desk, and feel free to explore the topic pages at edtech.fun to find many great resources and helps.
