Mount Doug EdTech Support

Welcome

This site was created to support the ongoing learning of the Mount Doug community in the area of educational technology. Here you will find EdTech resources and stories of how technology is being used in classrooms at Mount Doug.

There is no doubt that technology plays a large and important role in the lives of our students today. It engages them, is their go-to source for information and is a natural learning tool for many. However, it is important to remember that technology is just that, a tool, and a tool in the classroom should only be used if it contributes positively to learning, teaching and/or the learning environment. It is therefore the goal of the Mount Doug EdTech Support team to help facilitate this positive relationship at Mount Doug.

Tech Tuesday May 22nd, 2018

This week's TechTuesday post is all about how to print using our new multi-device printers and centralized printing model.

With this new model you will send your print job to one print destination, but can release that job at any of the 9 printers throughout the school.

To read more about Mount Doug's new centralized printing model see this week's post HERE.

Hi, my name is Alexis McKean and I heart Google Apps for Education ... and all things EdTech really. Technology has always held a strong interest for me as both a student and teacher and eventually led me to complete a Master of Educational Technology degree from Boise State University in 2012. After attending my first Google Summit in 2015, I fell in love with the potential of Google Apps for Education. Since then, GSuite has redefined my teaching and classroom and I am actively using and experimenting with it daily.

I currently teach Business, Accounting and InfoTech at Mount Doug and feel so fortunate to get to share my love of EdTech and GSuite as the EdTech support teacher. I am also a Google Certified Educator.

Need some inspiration to get started?
