TPS official page: An Introduction and steps for getting started.
Once you register on the site, click on the following to get to the TDA portion of this app.
- Click on School house icon
- Scroll down and click on Thoreau Demonstration Academy
- Once that opens, click on the star in the upper right
- Type "TDA app" or what ever you want to call this shortcut
- Click favorite
Now where ever you see the icon with three parallel horizontal lines(usually in the let corner of the app) you'll find this shortcut to TDA.
Now Click on ONLY the stuff, class information, TDA groups and organizations information you want "pushed" to you, your mobile device, etc.
We think this is a great tool we can use school wide, by classes, by grade, by teams, etc. If you’re curious go ahead and download the app. I have already put in staff and courses.
On Monday, April 14, 2014,Tulsa Public Schools will introduce this new district-wide app called School Connect to the public. School Connect is an app for both Apple and Android devices which allows our schools, teachers and groups to send (PUSH) one-way electronic communications to those who have subscribed to the app including parents, students and staff. (The app may also be viewed on your laptop or desktop PC). You may download it at www.TulsaSchools.org/app.
Drill down further in the app and subscribe to "pushes" from specific schools, classes and groups within TDA.
