How do we get better quality voices with a Chromebook?
I don’t know if you can help with a Chromebook. However, we are purchasing more read alongs with better quality. :)
Did I miss this? Do students have to be in their backpack to highlight text, etc?
Yes, they do.
Will that Mackin symbol just show up in Canvas?
In the assignment?
Yes, it does when you set up the integration.
There are some material in the presentation that will show you how. I can also help anyone with that.
Who do we contact to get the key to integrate with C
We also link Mackin to Moodle LMS
It is in your admin side. In the settings.
Great to know, Kris!!! Thanks for mentioning that!
If you need access to the admin side of MackinVIA, please reach out to me. I can help make the connection.
In Classroom, would we have to be a co-teacher in the class to share the reource?
So is there a limit to how many students can access the books shared?
I believe you will need to check the number of copies of each title to see how many students could access the book simultaneously.
Our kids have a sign in with Follett credentials, so they use them in either place.
What I like is adding a student to Follett, they are immediately added to Mackin - no extra step and literally that second.
If they sign in using the school username and password - can they still access resources you have curated for a specific purpose?
So if a student created their own backpack during the closure and we set up the integration now, will they lose their account or have multiple accounts?
Kelly, yes, they just wouldn’t be able to access the annotation tools (highlighting, note taking, etc.)
Thanks Ladies, always very informative! Can't wait to try this out with a class! I need to jump off and head to another meeting.
Is there a way to see who has backpacks right now? Or we go through our IT?
Yes, if you sign into your administrator account, then you can see the backpacks that are set up.
Yes Cathy. If you log in as an admin, you can go to users and look at backpacks
In Canvas if I link to a book in MackinVIA for a class what happens if that book that I want 30 students to look at is checked out?
Shannon - You can force the book to be returned if you that student just needs access and doesn’t need checked out.
So my entire class of 30 couldn’t open up a title at the same time if I assign it unless there are 30 copies in Mackin?
Yes, Cathy, that’s correct
We say the same - if you want to read (need it for assignment, etc), check out for the 6 day plus that you have. If you aren't sure you are going to read the entire book at this time, just Open.
Do you think Mackin is going to provide those new "multi-users" just during this summer?
through the end of September - thanks for update!
Sorry, I have to get off to do a another Zoom training. Excellent job! Thanks!
How to delete a group?
Here is a link to the presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1bXRgh3y8DB5RYxYEDBTV7wsx8m3ayFBVOVLsVG1VDY8/edit#slide=id.g1ef8320601_0_0
I believe you can deactivate a group but not delete it.
Thanks for all your great help and information!!
Here is a link to agenda: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1syzWWKYimku_RFvdFDcKeUjDpcMCXsNQ89MtFM7VB5I/edit
You are welcome, Cathy!!
@Cheryl, thanks, found that in admin
Except, I am probably not owner of 2018-2019 IASL award groups. Is that at your level?
Thank you! How to add DOGO News to the front page if that could be an extra time option?
Thank you very much!
Kristen--That is an option when you go to set up the home page.
Can you share curated groups with other group managers?
Thanks - have a good rest of the day!
