We were so honored to be selected to present at ISTE 2013. We felt that we did a good job highlighting our Engaged Learning Initiative at Hoover High School. 

Here is a blog post that Mr. Hulin shared from AJ Juliani. I think it does wonderful job of explaining how ISTE pushes us to try new ideas and increase our integration of technology!

Here are some great apps that I have learned about during PD this summer:


Group Me- group text messaging which includes dumb phones that don't get group text messages and you can send more than 10 messages at once. You can set the settings to SMS which goes to your text messages or to push which keeps messages within the app. 

Remind 101- one way text reminders to students with scheduled date reminders. They get a code and join the group. Great for classes and parent reminders. Real easy to set up. Users get texts one way, but you don't share your cell number. They can't respond.
