Looking for an awesome way to introduce the parents of new students to your class? Maybe there was a need to change classes or a student is new to Hoover High. Check out how Mr. Rushano introduces himself to parents of new students. Great job Mr. Rushano!!

From the iPad of Nikki Robertson...

If you start using the Google School Account and Google Drive ( there would be NO need for scanning, copying, etc.  Everything can be created, shared and graded through the Google Cloud, providing instant feedback for students.
If you just have to have your document in PDF or Microsoft Office Format you can simply download your Google Document to the desired form.

If your documents are already in Microsoft Format or PDF you can upload them into your Google Drive account with just a click or two.

The best thing about using Google Drive is that if you make any changes to your document the changes are made universally and you never need to send out an updated document or link.

I have also made a brief tutorial about how to print from the iPad to the WEPA Print Kiosks.

Here is a QR Code that connects to the tutorial above:
