On February 8th – I was honored to be able to speak to a room full of (fellow) Nevada school counselors. In the first presentation, a keynote address, we talked about key aspects of “followship”. In the breakout session focused on school counselor technology, we took a look at about 8 tech tools that help school counselors save time and be more efficient. Below are the slides from each presentation.
Huge thank you to BestCounselingDegrees.net for the shout out and recognition among their Top 30 Best Counseling and Psychology Blogs of 2014. It is much appreciated. Cheers!
Yesterday, I posted a blog post about Mouse Without Borders – a program that lets you use one mouse/keyboard to control multiple separate computers. However, what if you only have one computer? Did you know that there have been multiple studies (like this and this) showing the increased efficiency and productivity through using a two (or dual) monitor setup at work or home? It is true and totally awesome.
I want to thank all the counselors, supervisors, and grad students who took the time to create a submission for this scholarship – the results were pretty great and made my job difficult. I really wish I could have given it to all of you, but I had to narrow it down and did my best to do so.
The most important thing is that you all have used something new and have created tools that many can use (including yourself!). I hope that this challenged you and that you gained some knowledge and confidence in yourself. Do not be afraid to strike out, start over, and struggle through something – that is called learning and that is what we ask students to do each and every day.
