Adobe Spark is a web-based program (and has a free mobile app) that offers Post (graphics, memes, quotes, etc), Page (web stories), and Video (digital storytelling) options. Adobe Spark is FREE and it can be used with mobile devices.

Adobe Spark would be an exceptional tool for students to use for projects!


I created this example using my iPhone with my headphones (that have a microphone).

Technology Tool of the Week:

g(Math) is a Google Doc add-on that allows you to create math equations, expressions, graphs, formulas, and handwritten equations right in Google Docs! I know that many of you have asked about how to use Google Docs for math equations without using MathType…. this is a great alternative!


A Google Doc add-on is searched within Google Docs. Go to Google Docs, then find the “Add-ons” tab, and scroll down to “Get Add-ons”.

HOUR OF CODE WEEK 2016!

December 6-11, 2016

Hour of Code Template.jpg

This week schools all over the world will be participating in “Hour of Code 2016”. Students can go to a number of websites and try basic coding for an hour. See the Hour of Code EHS Library Lib Guide for suggestions!

The library will be hosting an open lab all day Tuesday, December 7th, and Wednesday, December 8th. Students can come down during their free time and try coding!  (Students that participate in the library will receive a sticker as seen above!). I am hoping to organize a larger presence in our school next year for Hour of Code...stay tuned.

For more information on the Hour of Code see below!




Technology Tool of the Week:
Want to save some time correcting exams that are true/false or multiple choice? Try ZipGrade! You can scan 100 exams per month for free!
