Hey, you just bought donuts!

So as a fund-raiser, my extracurricular sold Krispy Kreme donuts. To make things easier for me, I created a Microsoft Form that would track each sale — I didn’t want to have to read some kid’s scrawl from a paper form, or god-forbid, lose said form (that I would likely do more than the students). […]

Dominos – a self-checking activity

So if I were a trendy “influencer” I’d call this app-smashing — but instead I’ll just say here’s a cool way to use PowerPoint to make a self-checking activity for almost any subject area’s content knowledge (although in this case, there’s a little mathematical skill involved, too).

Breakout Rooms in Microsoft Teams

Each breakout room is a mini-Team with a shared chat space, a Microsoft Whiteboard, audio/video conferencing and a file space. If your school allows students […]

Help, (Teams), I need somebody…

I was thrilled that this year the Math Department has decided to move fully on to Microsoft Teams to provide Math Extra Help.  While we’ll continue to provide face-to-face drop-in help during lunch, students in any course can post a question on the Math & CS Team, in whichever channel corresponds to their course.Microsoft Teams […]
