Minnesota teachers: free training at MEA!

Learn about Campus Learning at Minnesota Educator Academy (MEA) and get free stuff!

There are two sessions at MEA this year focusing on how teachers are using Campus Learning tools! MEA is on Thursday, Oct. 17 at St. Paul RiverCentre. It is free and open to all Education Minnesota members and aspiring educators.  

At 9:30 in Classroom 2, teachers Marissa Knapp and Lizzie Warpinski from Randolph Public Schools are presenting on how they use Campus Learning to improve student achievement while working more efficiently. If you are new to Infinite Campus or know Campus has a lot more to offer than what you currently use, this session is for you! Marissa and Lizzie will give an overview of the Campus Learning tools they use, including: scoring electronic student work onscreen (Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.); using rubrics to provide feedback to students and parents; instructional planning, including individualization; collaboration; and more! 

In Classroom 6 at 1:00, teachers Kate Farmer, Alayna Godfrey and Beth Breiland from Farmington Area Public Schools are presenting on using digital competency-based scoring rubrics to communicate with students and parents. As Farmington High School’s 10th grade English PLC, Kate, Alayna and Beth collaborate on rubrics using Campus Learning, which allows them to make their student feedback more rapid, detailed and focused.  

While you’re at the sessions, be sure to network with other teachers from across the state who use Campus. And there’s free stuff! Teachers leading both sessions will have some giveaways and you can find out how to enter a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card! 

Don’t forget to visit Infinite Campus in the exhibit hall! Stop by our booth  booth 42 – where our top-flight consultants will be on hand to answer your Campus questions. Plus, there will be more free stuff! I will also be there in-between sessions, and as your User Insights Advocate at Infinite Campus, I want to hear about your experiences. What would help you save time and be more efficient in your day to day work so you can spend more time working with students? I want to know!

Infinite Campus Partners with Spring Lake Park High School: A series

Part 1: The teachers

This blog post, which is the first in a series of three, is a little different than what I usually write. I try to inform teachers who use Campus about tools available or updates to the software. I also like to highlight some of the cool things teachers are doing, both to acknowledge them and to inspire others with their stories. This series is different; I will highlight some teachers and students, but I also want to highlight Infinite Campus and share a unique way our company gives back to our local schools  Continue reading “Infinite Campus Partners with Spring Lake Park High School: A series”

Welcome to a new school year!

Dear Teachers, 

A new school year is a chance for a fresh start and a good time set some goals and focus on the things that are the most important. 

My top goal and number one priority is to make your life easier. I want this blog to be a place where I can write directly to you, teachers – to tell you what’s new with Campus and help you use Campus more efficiently. This is a direct line from Infinite Campus to teachers.  Continue reading “Welcome to a new school year!”

ISTE Report + Free Resources

Last week I was at ISTE! It was my first time there and it was definitely an experience. It was, among other things: overwhelming, inspirational, exhausting, illuminating, and fun. My favorite part was talking to teachers – whether it was at the Infinite Campus booth, during listen and learn sessions, at the poster sessions, or just sitting down to have a cup of coffee.  Continue reading “ISTE Report + Free Resources”

Teachers ‘test drive’ New Look of Campus tools

Campus Instruction Feature 1925Some teachers have already been using and providing feedback on a new look for Campus where all of your tools from Campus Instruction and Campus Tools are available in one place. No more clicking back and forth between! It’s part of a whole new look and feel that is coming to Infinite Campus. We are looking for more teachers to try it out and let us know what you think while it is still in development. It’s safe to do – if you turn it on and don’t like it, you can turn it off and try it again after more changes have been made.  Continue reading “Teachers ‘test drive’ New Look of Campus tools”
