This is an audio recording of Lorin Swenson and Wes Fryer’s presentation, “Tips for Managing, Wifi, iPads, and Chromebooks” at the 2016 Interactive Learning Institute (ILI) on November 30, 2016, in Norman, Oklahoma. ILI is sponsored by the K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma, and is an annual event focused on sharing best practices for technology integration in K12 classrooms. Grant recipients for OETT (the Oklahoma Education Technology Trust) administered by the K20 Center are among the participants in the conference, but it is open to educators at all levels from any school. The quality of this audio recording improves quite a bit about six minutes into the presentation, because we relocated the recorder in the room. The official program description for this session was:

Learn tips from the IT Department staff at Casady School about managing school wifi in a BYOD environment, managing iPad apps and access restrictions with an MDM (mobile device manager), and managing student Chromebooks using the Google Apps for Education (GAFE) administrator console. We’ll also address our layered network security strategy including endpoint security software, a next-generation firewall (NGFW) with in-line deep packet inspection (DPI), and more.

A green screen video uses “chroma-key compositing” to blend a background image or video with other layers of media. This special effect is often used in newscasting and weather reporting. Green screen videos require both the use of a green background and special software.

We all want to make learning more memorable and connected. The best way to do this is through incorporating multiple subject areas with authentic projects. We’ll be talking about how we kicked it up a notch at our school by bringing together our school’s Design curriculum and our 6th grade students’ yearly Cardboard Car science project. Students used Design Thinking skills and TinkerCAD, a free web-based 3D design software, to plan and build models of their working full scale cardboard cars. In addition to touching on how other subject areas have been integrated in our school, we will facilitate a discussion amongst those in attendance about what amazing things you’ve done (or want to do) yourselves. Come join in the conversation!
