'The ITRTs have been pushing STEAM/STEM for about a year now.  Why?  Becasue the VDOE is pushing STEAM/STEM.  In fact, coding skills should be taught in all grade levels and in all content areas.  This Engineering Design Process image is from the following website: This website also has ideas for potential STEM/STEAM learning.

Every Single Setting in iOS Control Center and How Each One Works

Photo: David Nield (Gizmodo)

It’s your all-in-one iPhone settings screen, accessible with a swipe up from the bottom of the display (or a swipe down from the top-right corner on an iPhone X or a double-tap of the Home button on an iPad). But do you know what all the Control Center options and switches actually do? And how you can make the most of them?

To customize it on any device, open up the Settings app then choose Control Center from the list: Turn the Access Within Apps toggle switch to off to restrict Control Center to the Home screen, and tap Customize Controls to set which options appear on the panel.

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about what all these things do.

Happy Spring Break!

The ITRTs want to wish you a fabulous Spring Break!  You deserve this rest!  And when we come back, we only have 7 more weeks after that!


Have a Wonderful Spring Break!

Happy Friday!
