April 27, 2019 General Meeting: Susan M. Bearden and tech trends in schools

Susan M. Bearden will talk about tech trends in schools. Note: the room (and building) we will use at George Mason is not our usual lair, but one building away. Check the link (⇧) for details.

Also, check out this terrifying video on electronic mail, with our Email Compendium, Volume 1. This contains lots of snippets from the General Meeting podcasts, focusing on the subject that brought the most fear and horror to the Q&A session moderators.

Makerspace with a Mac

Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!  

We had great fun at a recent #ClubhouseSaturday trying out group Facetime. We connected with a longtime Pi Board Member and now west coast friend of the club Travis Good.  Travis has a work area that looks more like a well equipped makerspace, and sent us this short video so we could show it to our Pi members!   https://www.facebook.com/washingtonapplepi/videos/286413558651887/
