Hey Math Teachers!!

If you are a math teacher, you may want to check out this site. It is called Polypad by Mathigon. It has some great manipulatives for even Algebra and Geometry.  Here is the link below:


Many of you have new Pro Boards in your rooms. Below are a couple of videos that Jeff Tron created that covers many of the features on the new boards. (created 8/4/2023)

**I recently added a video below. You can now use Active Inspire with your new Proboards without buying any extra cables using the Screenshare program. This would also allow you to use your document camera hooked up to your desktop just like it was before you got your new board. It isn't necessary to hook the camera straight to the board. (added 8/29/2023)

One thing that needs to be added: For desktop computers, you need to download and install the Promethean Screenshare Program and not use the extension in Chrome. The Chrome extension works great with the Chromebooks, but for desktops download and install the program using this link:

If you are having issues with the desktop computers connecting, updates may be required. Put in a tech work order to get that taken care of.

Jeff Tron 

(eLearning Coach/Technology Trainer)

Welcome to the teacher resource website.  I created this site to be a tool for WCSC staff members.  This site will have handouts, tutorials, and videos that will help you to implement the Chromebooks into your daily instruction.

My goal is to keep it current and loaded with ideas for implementing technology into your classroom.  

If you are doing something awesome in your classroom, please let me know. If possible, I would like to visit, take photos, and share your success on the teacher spotlight page on this website.

Chromebook Insurance

Please encourage students to get the Chromebook insurance. I can't push this enough. For only $20, most everything is covered, if it is damaged, lost, or stolen. The link is on the WCSC website on the Technology tab and I have copied it to this link as well:
