Inst Tech Updates: Social Studies, Math and Project Share

Hello readers!
Some of you get these announcements, but in case you don’t there are three important new releases for you to check out.

1. Project Share is now on Twitter! Follow them @projectsharetx

  • They will be tweeting about Project Share announcements, updates, and available courses and content.

2. OnTrack End of Course for World History and World Geography are ready for district import.

  • Each district in Region XIII has a Project Share contact person (perhaps you) who is authorized to request a copy of all OnTrack End of Course Prep online courses for high school students.  These courses are added to the district’s Project Share corner and managed internally by the district.  This means a district can make multiple copies (for multiple teachers) manage enrollment, manage assessments and time frames and a lot more.  And since this is Project Share, it is all free of course.
  • To learn more about OnTRACK for Acceleration and Intervention visit http://ipsi.utexas.edu/OnTRACK.html
  • Talk to your district Project Share contact person or send us a note at projectshare@esc13.txed.net for more information.
3. The Math SmartBytz collection is now available on Texas Education on iTunes U.
  • This series features animated explanations on a wide variety of math concepts. Check out Math SmartBytz for learning resources in subjects such as Coordinate Geometry, Equivalent Fractions, and Venn Diagrams. The videos in this collection were developed for educators and students by the Region 10 Education Service Center.
  • You can access iTunes U for Texas Education by visiting http://projectsharetexas.org and clicking the Apple logo or adding the iTunes U app to your iPad or iPhone (recommended).
Always remember, you can contact the Instructional Technology team here for assistance with training and support on these or many other education technology topics.
Happy Trails
