With the goal of trying to make technology resources easier for teachers to access, I’ve created a web app that can be downloaded on your smartphone or tablet.
If you have access to a smartphone or tablet, simply open a browser and find your way to http://wusd.app.appery.io or scan the QR code below.
What’s in the app?
The app consists of 3 parts: Home, Resources, and Get Help.
The Home screen provides quick access to the WUSD Calendar, Your Classroom LMS, and Web Mail as well as an explanation of the purpose of the app.
On the Resources Screen you will find links to the tech ready team blog, the new STEM units that are currently being created, the curriculum maps, as well as a link to the My Learning Plan website. On the bottom of the Resources Screen you can swipe across to access the different WUSD Social Media: WUSD Facebook, Tech Ready Facebook, and the Tech Dog Twitter Page.
Probably the most useful portion of the app is the Get Help page. This page gives you the option to report a computer or network problem and turn in a ticket to the help desk via an online form. In addition there is a form for requesting help with technology integration issues which I will receive. At the bottom of the page is the link to the technology resources page on www.wusd.us where you can find answers to your technology questions.
How do I get the app on my device?
It’s very simple to place this app on your device or tablet. Simply navigate to the site mentioned above http://wusd.app.appery.io. Once you have the app open in your browser you can add this web app to the home screen of your device by finding the “Add to Home Screen” icon. When you open this app directly from your home screen you will notice that it is no longer running inside a browser, but as a separate app.
