Information about TOMORROW!

Hi Medfield Educators,

Friday's Digital Learning Day is less than 24 hours away.  In order to make the day a success, please keep in mind the following:
  • We will be starting at 8:00 in the HS Auditorium.  Please try to get to the High School a few minutes early. Dr. Marsden will be starting the day promptly at 8:15. The day will be over by 3:00.  
  • If you are bringing your own device, please bookmark the Medfield Digital Learning Day blog in your browser - . This will be the main portal where you can access presentations, see your schedule for the day, win prizes (yes, I said that, and there are MANY more than last year!) and a whole lot more.
  • Some of the teachers of the sessions have been sending out information to participants about apps to download, or surveys to fill out, or content to bring.  Please make every effort to do your 'homework' as that will help the sessions stay on track tomorrow.  Our presenters have been working extremely hard (even during their snow day) to ensure high quality content for you.
  • If you are bringing your own device, please make sure that your device is fully charged or that you bring in the necessary charging equipment.  We will provide instructions on how to connect to the wifi.
  • In some sessions you will create projects for your classes.  Please have lesson content available to you either via the web, flash drives or on your computer (if using your own device) or shared to the network (if using a school laptop).
  • Laptops and iPads will be made available in the classrooms that are requiring them.  If you do not have the specific device,  you can just grab one once you are in the class.  All school equipment (laptops, iPads) needs to stay in the room where the sessions are being taught.
  • Lunch is being provided by the District (yah!); during lunch, the student run Help Desk (the Wifi Warriors) will be available to help you out with any of your technology needs/questions.  They are located in the HS LMC.   This is also a good time to collaborate with colleagues about tech projects you are working on.
If you have any questions or concerns about Friday, please let Diane, Neal, Mary Q or me know.  
I sincerely hope you enjoy our Digital Learning Day!

Thanks so much,

SignUps are Closed & Tips for the Day

Hi Medfield Educators,

The countdown is at 2 days! We're all excited and trying to make last minute preparations for a successful day.  I wanted to share a few tips that you can do to help out too.

First, if you have not signed up for sessions, the google form is officially closed. You will have to email Neal or Diane with your selections. Please be mindful in not choosing sessions that are already closed.

Second, if you plan on bringing a PC laptop, we'll need to adjust some settings in order for you to connect to our WIFI network. Either bring your laptop into school tomorrow and see your building's tech aide or plan on dropping it off with our help desk first thing on Friday to get you connected.

Third, some presenters will be emailing you information about their session pertaining to signing up for an account or installing specific apps. This will allow for more time exploring and learning about the topic rather than installing and getting signed in.

Fourth please know your school google login and apple username/pw. Write it down or type it in the notes app to make the day go smoother.

AND lastly, don't forget to fully charge your devices the night before and bring a charger with you!

Thanks! & Happy Snow Day!
