The Counseling Geek turns 3 years old today – thank you for being a great reader and part of my Professional Learning Network. Check out what has been special and what’s to come inside.
Hello faithful and fellow Geek. As promised last year when I started loosely “monetizing” this blog with affiliate ads from Amazon, I want to provide a brief yearly review of the ins and outs of The Counseling Geek. This analysis will be from July 1, 2014 to May 6th, 2015 (not because that is a year but this is when I have time to write it up).
NVSCA 2015 – How to NOT be a leader & Time Saving Tech Tools for School Counselor Sanity Presentations
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.
After some heavy lifting, flexing of digital muscles, and a few headaches – I am pleased to bring you the new and refreshed site. I had been thinking about updating for a time now and planned on getting it done in the summer, but gave it a shot over my spring break. There will be updates, changes, and a few errors here and there – but hopefully it will provide you with a new and improved user experience.
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.
Have you ever wanted to feel like you were the master of your technology? I thought so – now is the chance.
Lots of times, we counselors (and teachers or administrators) have an old desktop but also a laptop that we need to use for different purposes. What if you wanted or needed to use both? Did you know you can make a dual monitor setup at home or at work with out two monitors (but with two computers)? You can.
Jeremy Goldman and I are glad to be privileged with writing a two part series of articles focused on Branding and Marketing Your School Counseling Programs for the ASCA School Counselor Magazine. Part two was just published and paper copies are on their way to you as we speak, but the electronic version is now out (linked below).
Today’s post is thanks to Amalia Bush from The Best Choice Reviews who has passed along a very cool and informative infographic (a visual representation of data) comparing the ever popular iPad to other tablets on the market. Take a look!
