Scott Floyd, Chief Technology Officer at WOISD, was the special guest at our teacher lunch and learn today. He shared all the bells and whistles that accompany our new Epson iProjectors. Our teachers and students will have the opportunity to share their screens wirelessly on the projector system. The Epson iProjection system works with Chromebooks, iOS, and Android devices.
The Roughneck Book Club recently read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. The students loved the baby’s adventures. Shortly after the reading, our book club realized our Gingerbread Baby was missing! We put out a plea on social media asking for help.
The response was overwhelming! There were so many kind people who sent us postcards and messages via Facebook and Twitter.
We tracked our Gingerbread Baby’s sightings on Google Earth. Please check out the link above to see all the cities, states, and countries our Gingerbread Baby has visited. We hope to find him before we leave for Christmas!
White Oak Middle School Tech Club is participating in the Gingerbread Community STEM Challenge. Schools and communities across the United States and the globe will soon be busy creating models of their community out of gingerbread. At WOMS, our students are in the planning stages. Each group will create one building in our community. All students have the option of using Makey Makeys, Squishy Circuits, Ozobots, or LittleBits to add movement and color to their scene. When we finish building, we will Skype with other schools to share our communities and learn from other students around the world. Want to join in the fun? Sign up at the following website!
