Homeschooling Resources

Saturday, January 13, 2018

Today, we're proud to announce a new addition to our Utilities section of the site! This new section will be devoted to providing free resources to homeschooling families. We're thankful for these families that devote the money, time, and energy that it takes to build up the next generation for Christ, and we want to help them succeed.

We intend for our catalog of homeschool products to grow over time, but today we're starting with a very helpful arithmetic worksheet generator. This generator allows the user to choose from a set of options to craft their own worksheets in addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division, and then automatically creates a worksheet of random problems and an answer key to go with it. Both worksheet and key can then be easily printed.

Best of all, the arithmetic worksheet generator is available to everyone, even without an East Jordan log-in. You can find it on the Utilities page by clicking the magenta pulley on the left-hand navigation menu. We offer it as a service to the community, and we hope that you will find it to be beneficial!

Iconoclast Browsing Extension

Monday, January 1, 2018
To ring in the new year, I'm proud to announce the launch of our first utility: East Jordan Iconoclast.

Iconoclast is our custom-built browser extension for Google Chrome designed to make the web a safer place. With Iconoclast installed, your web-browser will require log-in with your East Jordan account to keep unauthorized users like your children from browsing the web. It will also automatically block access to hundreds of black-listed sites that contain inappropriate content.

You can also choose to use Iconoclast as accountability software that logs your web history and allows another East Jordan member (of your choice) to view that history. And, to help keep you accountable to only use the web for appropriate purposes, Iconoclast enables that accountability partner to block your browser's access to images, or even the web (except for a hand-full of white-listed sites).

Best of all, Iconoclast is free to use. Once you're signed in with your account at East Jordan Church, click the magenta "pulley" icon on the left to access the Utilities page and follow the instructions to install Iconoclast.
