I can always tell when folks are gearing up for the new year because my inbox is crowded in the morning.

1. Please remember our friend and colleague Retha Kilmer as she is hospitalized and facing a very serious health issue.

2. Not only do I not know what time of day it is, I can't keep up with the MONTH! (At least I'm consistent.) The attendance verification forms for the summer inservice that were on the website had the wrong month on them - June instead of July. I have corrected those. If you need to please download them again.

3. The ARACDA Summer Conference (AKA the "Reading Clinic") has two VERY IMPORTANT sessions plugged in at the top of the day on Monday. First is the new directors' orientation. That's tough to get the word out because most, if not all, of the new directors are not yet signed on to the mailing lists. If you know of a new director in your area please make certain they are aware of the session - 9:30-10:30 in the Pageant Room at the Austin. Immediately after that is a session on "How to be a good judge at region tryouts." (That's not the official name but that's what we're hoping for.) We will go over the rubric and the scoring process. Since most people will be doing this in only a few weeks this is a timely opportunity to have this discussion. It's not just for new directors but for ALL. If you're gonna judge tryouts this would be good to attend. Technically these two sessions are "pre-conference." In-service credit will be offered by the ArkCDA.

4. The process of registering your school(s) for the new year is just that; a PROCESS. It's intended to walk you through it Our IT Department has made every effort to make the process as simple and easy to follow as possible. REMINDER: You can send in one form and check for your junior and senior high's but YOU MUST LOG IN AND REGISTER THEM SEPARATELY.

General Discussion / How to generate QR codes to sound files for your students.
« Last post by tomstreet on July 09, 2015, 07:55:42 AM »
1. Create your sound file - mp3, wav, etc.

2. Upload it to your website or to dropbox or some other cloud storage service that allows you to share files.

3. Copy the full link to the sound file.

4. Open a QR code generator (There are many of them. Just do an internet search. If you use Google Chrome there is an app in the Chrome store that adds that to your browser)

5. In the QR code generator paste the url to the sound file and then generate the QR code.

6. Print or save it and publish it to your students. They can scan the QR code and it will download the sound file and play it on their device. CAUTION! If they don't use wifi for the download - if they use their data connection only - IT WILL COUNT AGAINST THEIR DATA PLAN EVERY TIME THEY ACCESS THE FILE. That may result in charges for running over their amount. Make certain your students understand that before you allow them access to the QR code.

To see a short youtube video on the process click this link -

If they don't have an app to scan qr codes just have them go to their app store on their device and search for "free QR code scanner." There are many of them available.
