In this episode, Tom and Michael discuss BUSD's LMS, Haiku, and how they have made an open student portfolio page. It can be used to display student work to parents and others, and can be updated with work throughout the year. Now is a good time to get these pages set for next year. 

We give some presentation tips, based upon research, experience, and Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds. Get some tips to make your presentations to the class, colleagues or even on the web, much better than they have ever been.

Lastly, we talk about end of the year packing and storage, especially because here in BUSD, we are transforming our elementary learning spaces into digital learning centers. We give some tips on packing, purging and putting things into the cloud. 

As always, your feedback is welcome. edtosas@bassettusd.org

On this episode, Mike and Tom discuss the new Apple iOS release coming soon, 9.3. They went to an Apple event highlighting the changes coming for education, making iPads easier to deploy and use within a classroom setting. Thanks to Whittier City School District for hosting the event.

They also introduce a new segment called ManicMinute. Their guest tries to answer a series of introductory questions in the shortest time possible. They roped in three of their colleagues to beta test the segment, and those first three guinea pigs are in the second segment of todays show.  

Lastly, Tom and Mike gush about a couple of sessions @ the upcoming CUE 2016 and do some name dropping, with a new sound effect to boot!

We hope to see you at CUE2016. Tweet us if you are there, we will be recording every night, and we would love to have you as a guest on our show!
