There is a new social media app called Burn Book. It is the newest of the social media apps that offer anonymity and are popular with our youth. Burn Book has proven to be a huge distraction in our educational system nationwide and its use is causing serious problems in our schools. The app has a tremendous amount of followers throughout the world and has captured the attention of law enforcement and educators alike because it provides a forum of students posting anonymous threats.

On Saturday, February 28th, Jurupa Unified School District Teachers and Library staff came together to participate in the District’s Tech Fest 2015, hosted at Mira Loma Middle School. This event was organized by the Technology Department, as a way for teachers to come together and participate in conference sessions to improve their technology skills and usage in their classrooms. Dennis Large, Director of Educational Technology for the Riverside County Office of Education, was the keynote speaker for the event. He used his vast experience as an administrator, teacher and current doctoral student to discuss how to navigate the increased access in technology while maintaining a focus on quality instruction.


Some of the sessions offered provided teachers a hands on workshop to be prepared to implement the topic on Monday morning. The teachers and support staff in the district, came out to enjoy sessions that was of interest to them. Sessions offered included: Office 365, Mobi Devices, Class Dojo, iPads, QR Codes, Coding, Gooru and Online Behavior Management systems. Over 100 teachers and library staff were in attendance. 

The event included a Twitter Contest for JUSD staff to post insightful remarks and pictures throughout the day. The winner, Sarah Yates, won donated tickets to a Kings game. The event also featured multiple items donated by JUSD vendors, with over 10 iPads, 7 Mobi devices, 5 Classroom Wireless Presenters going to JUSD teachers and staff.

Students from Mira Loma Middle School’s, Video Production class, taught by Mr. Schumacher were there to capture the event.

Jurupa’s children are in great hands with these excellent educators, stepping up to make a difference in the lives of our children.
