Tools for all teachers

Stuy Schedule

Stuy Schedule with Audio notifications*

Teacher/Classroom list* Show all teachers, their classes, periods and current classrooms.  Sort by teacher, room, period, etc.

Student Picture Flashcards*

Registration

Why: Several of the tools above (those marked with a red asterisk *) require registration, which means that you have to be Stuy teacher with an assigned login-id and password to use them.  For some tools, this is because of DOE regulations having to do with viewing student pictures.  For others, like the Stuy Schedule with audio notifications, I just don't want an entire computer classroom of students accessing this and turning the volume up on their computers at the right time.  So...
How:
For all registration-based tools, except the Homework Server:  Using your DOE email account (@schools.nyc.gov), send the following information to me, to pbrooks@micromind.com:  Your name, and your preferred password.  I will reply to your DOE email address.

For the Homework Server (and the other tools): Using your DOE email account (@schools.nyc.gov), send the following information to me, to pbrooks@micromind.com:  your name, your preferred password, and which periods you want the homework server to cover (e.g. periods 2, 4 and 5).  I will reply to your DOE email address and provide the teacher's URL for you and another URL for your students.

 

If you have trouble with any of these tools or have questions about them, feel free to come and see me or write me email.

I'm most often in room 301 during my free periods.  You can get my schedule using the Teacher/Classroom List tool above.
