We field many "how to" questions from folks and occasionally will ask if they have checked Atomic Learning for help. We are often met with a quizzical look or "I don't know how to access it." Let's see if we can help get past some of that.
For many years, Lab has subscribed to Atomic Learning. In its early days, AL was a place to find brief, narrated "how to" tutorials on popular software. Over the years, its scope has grown to include many additional features useful to educators, including sections on integrating technology into content area instruction, evaluating online resources, digital storytelling, keeping kids safe online, and many more. You can even sign up for a "how to use Atomic Learning" webinar.
It also includes numerous tutorials on how to use the features of the new Epson BrightLink485w1 projectors in Earl Shapiro Hall and Blaine Hall.
If you have a LabNet ID, all you need to do is visit www.atomiclearning.com/login/ucls and log in with your regular LabNet username and password.
Students who don't have a LabNet ID can still use AL, and in fact, so can our Lab School families, given the generous terms of the AL contract. We can't post the log-in information for that on a world-readable web page for obvious reasons, but if you will either ask one of the CS teachers or any IS staff member, they will be happy to provide it. Once you have that information, you can log in using the link above or from the main AL home page.
Give it a look. We would be surprised if you did and did not find it helpful.
