iPad Productivity Apps (for Principals & Administrators)

I am going to be training our principals (and other administrators) on productivity apps for better utilizing their iPads.  I have talked with several people, who have given some great ideas and many people across the state have contributed ideas through the TECSIG email list.

Click here is the list of iPad apps for productivity (this list would probably work for more than just educators) downloadable as a PDF.

Tech & Learning Magazine - How We Developed A Mobile App for Our School District â?? You Can Do It Too

Tech & Learning magazine published my article on how we developed our Judson ISD Connect! mobile app for iOS and Android.


The article cover how we used Conduit Mobile to easily create a published app for our community.  The article is more in depth than the prior CTO Technotes blog entry.


The T&L article is available on their site at: http://www.techlearning.com/Default.aspx?tabid=67&EntryId=4041

Judson ISD Featured in Cover Story of THE Journal with feature on "Ease the Budget Burden"

Returning from Spring Break, I was surprised with the latest issue of THEJournal, which featured Judson ISD in its cover story "Ease the Budget Burden..and Regain Control of IT Costs."


While we are far from the only district with great ideas and keeping costs under control and/or cutting them, it is nice to see our great Technology Services' team get some press for some of the things we are doing.

There are many great ideas from several districts featured in the article, which is available on THE Journal's web site at http://thejournal.com/research/2012/02/digital-edition_febmar/asset.aspx?tc=assetpg
