Surfaces, too!:)

   I HAVE to admit - I would have been the LAST person that would have said, "Maybe we should pilot some Surfaces in Mr. Askegaard's lab?"  Well, that is EXACTLY what we are doing.  He is having his computer apps classes use Microsoft accounts with the OneNote app and all that is it capable of.  Mr. Askegaard says, "it's like Google Docs on Steroids!!!"  He has been happy with it to say the least:)!!  I must admit, it is SUPER amazing and something that works PERFECT with Microsoft Office.  The students are able to upload assignments to OneNote, and he can go in and then correct everything RIGHT THERE - REAL TIME - and the students can see.  Schoology works in the same way - BUT - it's not as easy with documents that are NOT PDF files. 
  Here is what the lab looks like:


I was SO SO excited when I saw the purple keyboards since purple and white are our school colors - YAHOO:)!!!  Things are going well for Mr. Askegaard - and even though there were a TON of issues at the beginning of the year - he has troubleshooted his way through and things seem to be going much more smoothly now!  MORE TO COME ON THIS....

Happy Monday,
Mrs. I:)
