NCPA #edtech Briefing: Thursday, November 5

 

The Innovation Hub is staffed, resourced, and ready for action!  James and Jordan shared information about how this #makerspace can be used for any class.  They also showed us how to book it, and the common resources and materials you would find there.

Stay tuned for more information, events and trainings related to the #InnovationHub

Leo also talked about how GradeCam is a helpful tool.  It cuts down time spent grading, organizes your data in an easy to use dashboard, and gives immediate feedback to students.

You can find the link to log in to GradeCam on the #staffportal
