Welcome to Tech Bytes, a weekly newsletter brought to you by the Digital Learning Team. We hope this publication will:
  • Inspire staff to be creative, courageous, and compassionate with Ed Tech
  • Bring harmony to the whole school and bridge the gap between ELC, ES, and SS sections
  • Support staff in the implementation and integration of the new AISB Tech Mission/Guiding Statements while highlighting the ISTE Standards. We invite you all to be leaders and role models in enabling students to
    • Be a force for good in the world
    • Embrace possibility
    • Pursue individual pathways
    • Make the world our classroom
    • Learn and grow together
  • Provide staff with professional learning opportunities, tech updates, and ideas.

Screencastify – Feedback, Collaboration and Submit with Liviu  

Distance Learning has taught us to use new tools to create engaging content for our learners, communicate and collaborate with our colleagues and provide feedback to our students. Screencastify is a wonderful tool to enhance your teaching with engaging and creative content, provide meaningful feedback to student’s work, and effectively collaborate asynchronously with your teams. You can join us for a 30 minutes session on how to be a Screencastify Genius and Screencastify Submitter with a tool at hand.
