For the 2017-18 school year, teachers in Granite School District will receive a 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 topic pages linked above expand beyond the quick helps of the TIP Cards by providing video and/or written tutorials for district tools, as well as by 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.
Please keep the cards handy at your desk, and feel free to explore the topics above to find many great resources and helps. If you are looking for help with a specific resource or problem you can also use the “Search this website…” box in the right sidebar.
