Provide your staff with inspirational ideas and technology tidbits by placing your 1-pagers in a place we all have to visit - the restroom. PD on the Potty (White MS) and Bathroom Bytes (Fertitta MS) are a great way to "byte" size information to your team.

Challenge your staff to implement technology and blended learning pedagogy in their classrooms with a school wide bingo board. Shout out educators who complete the challenges by adding their names to the board and reward employees who score 5 in a row.

Set the tone for the day before your students walk into their classrooms. Using a color code system on the doors informs students how to be prepared for each class session.
- RED - no technology needed
- YELLOW - technology be used later in the day
- GREEN - technology start, prepare your Chromebook
