Learning Technology & Tech Observations by Dr. Helen Teague


Weekend Ed. Quote ~ August 30

“I had to remind myself that the lines on the court are the same; the
court’s the same size. Everything around it may be bigger but the court’s
the same size.”

~~Cori “Coco” Gauff, 15 year-old tennis player speaking on July 3, 2019 at
the 2019 Wimbledon tournament. Gauff is the youngest player at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.


Good quote to share with your students, especially as the school year starts.

Back-to-School Learning Apps


App recommendations from TCEA

As you prepare for back-to school investigate these learning apps from TCEA’s blog post by Dr. Bruce Ellis at this link


Free Access to Calm App for K-12 teachers

Any teacher with a K-12 classroom can gain free access to Calm, the #1 app for meditation and sleep AND get free access to Calm’s paid subscription service available on Android, iOS, and the web – a $59.99 value!

Teachers will score unlimited access to guided meditations and mindfulness exercises, including Calm Kids, which offers programs tailored for age groups from pre-K through high school. The goal of this initiative is to provide teachers with the tools and resources they need to help kids to develop a lifelong capacity for greater self-awareness, concentration, patience, and resilience.

If you’re a teacher, just head here and fill out a simple 30-second form and you’ll be approved within just a few days (it usually takes about 3 days to approve applications). Once you’re approved, you’ll receive a welcome email with further information on how to get started. And then you’ll start receiving tips, suggestions, and best practices to include mini breaks to your school day!
