New Year start up – lean or not

start up Getting ready for my new school year is always a busy time with technology. I can tell this year I am better at mustering and creating resources than I was this time last year. The students will be back on the 30th so I still have time. Not sure if this is a lean start up or not. The “customer” feedback won’t come in until I get Twiducate up and running for the year. That will start in lesson one. My plan is simply this. I need the class and home group lists in electronic form. I need my curriculum guidelines. I need to muster my resources into folders but have back ups online so I and my students can access them . The first lessons are designed to get them up and running quickly with their language skills because they have just had a long summer holiday. This is where little videos and well prepared slide presentations play their part. They create instant attention and absorption of content and I can bring in the other elements of lessons from there. Part of my overall organisation has been to sort my files out on my computers and ensure my USB flash drives have the materials I need organised in a way where I can locate information quickly. So, what exactly have I been doing? I thought it would be good to keep track of how I am starting my year with technology:

1.Get class lists from SMS and put into Excel
2.Get TT from LMS and make an image
3.Set up to do app
4.Set up reminder app
5.Set up notes app
6.Look for YouTube videos, Vimeo and Daily Motion videos
7.Organise LiveBinders and think which other ones I can do.
8.Clean and charge MacBook
9.Change desktop and icons
10.Download TT template and then make a colourful version in Excel and save as Word file as well
11.Add term dates and Easter to tablet notes
12.Record phone nos and other numbers on tablet
13.Download and / or locate current curriculum guides and guidelines
14.Set up senior classes on Twiducate
15.Look for videos, images and complementary online texts for course units
16.Add comments in Word doc to a newspaper article to fast track the year 12 start up
17.Keep blogs up to date with useful materials
18.Back all resources up
19.Check emails
20.Make little videos and slide presentations to fast track content absorption
