Laptops in Grade 1

Students in Grade 1 worked in pairs to logon and off of the laptops, find icons, and even navigate the Gattis Website and discover online reading resources. Students worked on Acceptable Use Policies and appropriate ways to handle our equipment. These responsible students did a fantastic job working together and demonstrating our AUP at Gattis.

AcivCafe at Gattis

Gattis Elementary hosted a districtwide Promethean training on Nov. 10th, 2011. District Educators had the opportunity to learn how to use Promethean ActivInspire's screen recording tools to create videos and tutorials that they can post on their TeacherWeb or blog to share with students and parents. Karen Adams from Promethean was our guest presenter and was fantastic at sharing ways to apply this and other clever tools available in the software.

If you are a teacher in the district and you are interested to see more Promethean resources created and shared by RRISD Instructional Technology Specialists, visit our Flipchart Wiki at There is one more ActivCafe Scheduled for teachers on Dec. 6th, register on Ecampus if you are interested in attending.
