Looks great! We are having some issues with HelpMe2Learn (networking) but you can still explore the program and get started on AR. Let me know what your next steps are for Oct, Nov, &Dec and who will be responsible for what.

Success! We all were able to navigated through the management of AR and input our class lists, created a class list, and previewed a sample AR test.

Next steps, are for us to locate HM AR quizzes and install them. Then it would be possible to begin using AR with our classes, to reinforce HM program. Review the offerings of AR so we are informed on what is available to use.
Report generating to support collection of data.

Let us know when HelpMe2Learn is ready ... because we are ready! :-)

Wow! Great job everyone! Just to follow up... who will be installing the quizzes? (Will you need help?) And who will be presenting the "AR offerings"?
I plan to have AR ready for Kelly to experiment with by the end of next week. Then in 2 weeks you can come to the lab and enter your kids names. And in 3 weeks it should be in your classrooms. That's the plan anyway!
In the meantime, explore the program. You will want to know it before your kids start. Also there are binders available for checkout that have printouts of the screen shots (if you want to review it during commercials:0)

Even more success. The HM tests are installed. The goal is to have all teachers ready to use them at the end of our next PLC. Then by December we can collaborate on how we are using them, creating as a team a "presentation" for the other teachers. As to who? We are not sure yet, but maybe someone will jump up and be willing. =)
