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”

Teacher feedback informs changes to Reports

Campus Instruction Feature 1921

Thank you to all the teachers who submitted feedback to Infinite Campus! Many teachers submit feedback every day, sometimes through a feedback button in Campus or through Campus Community. Even though you might not get a response right away, know your comments are read, compiled, and given to a development team when they begin a new project. This is exactly what happened with Reports.

Making the most of conferences

A reader suggested I write a blog post on parent-teacher conferences. I like it when people suggest topics so I dug in!

I taught both middle and high school, so while I’m confident writing about those age levels and making suggestions, I thought I should enlist a little help about the primary grades. I reached out to a friend who is in her 21st year of teaching kindergarten in Annandale, Minnesota – Katie Zuehlke. Continue reading “Making the most of conferences”
