Welcome back to Hoover High to all of our students, faculty and staff! It is going to be a great year at HHS. We have issued over 2500 iPads to students and over 200 to faculty and staff and are loving the great uses of technology that we are seeing as we walk around to classrooms. As you can imagine, there are some issues that come along with this integration. We are working through finding areas of the building where we will need to beef up our infrastructure and are working with teachers to solve iPad issues in the classroom. We are working hard to be good stewards of our funding at HHS. We have made all admin surveys, club sign up sheets, ER sign up forms, etc... available through Google forms. We love the HHS Football slogan for this year and it goes along with what we expect of all at HHS- Never Enough Excel Today. Check back to find out more info on the HHS Engaged Learning Initiative!

Students will be using Google docs to sign in and out of the library this year. Make sure to check your email for this link when sending students to the Library @ HHS!

I have a student who uses Evernote. I want her to save her work as a PDF to upload in Moodle. Can that be done? We couldn’t find a button that did that directly. I don’t want to make her change from something she is very comfortable using, but I really need work uploaded as PDF. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
I have suggested to my students the App “PaperPort Notes” as a free alternative to Notability. It can be organized much like notability and it can transfer to Dropbox and other sources in PDF format. I thought I’d pass that along.
I know some have suggested Evernote to students, but from what I can tell so far, I don’t think it will transfer as a PDF where students can upload to my online course….

Resource paid by the school. Works great with Ipads. Students must register to watch. Fits our curriculum like a glove and would be considered “transformative” when completing lesson plans. Also, can be utilized in Common Core…
