6th grade World Cultures students took advantage of the library's Next Generation Digital Classroom with a lesson on map reading using an augmented reality app called Aurasma. 

We are excited to announce a new opportunity for our Round Rock ISD families to access Microsoft Office products – including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more – free of charge for their home computers, tablets, and mobile devices.
The program is a part of the district’s purchase of the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement. This opportunity for our families came free of charge from Microsoft as part of this Agreement.
Microsoft Office 365 allows Round Rock ISD students to have everything they need to create, edit, and share documents using Office 365.  Accessing this offer only requires an active Round Rock ISD email address, making it an easy way to get Office products at home.

CD Fulkes 7th graders had a lot of fun using the Aurasma app to go through library orientation.  They worked through 5 stations that linked to a video, slide show, or screencast. 

Today we are using the iPads to record vocal warm ups for student review. They will be using these in individual conferences with me as we make vocal goals for their first semester of theatre. They are recording tongue twisters so there is much laughter and fun in the room! Highly engaging!
