I’m still working out how to best communicate with everyone – I created this blog in WordPress to play with something that isn’t a Google product, but it’s still a work in progress!
On with the tips…please note that there are “tags” at the end of each post. If you want to read more of my posts about, say, Google Classroom, simply click on that tag and you’ll find everything I’ve posted on the subject. I’m going to be adding content from last year, too, so the amount of content may seem meager now but won’t be for long!
- Click here to see what apps you are connected to through your CCHS Google account, and take a moment to delete them if you’re not actively using them.
- Do you forget your password sometimes? This quick video tells you where to find all of the passwords you’ve saved while using your Google account!
- Richard Byrne, who writes Free Technology for Teachers, has YouTube channel with a bounty of “Practical EdTech Tips.” If you’re curious and looking for ideas – this is the place for you!
- Students are very into extensions that give them customized tab pages. These are pages that you see each time you open a new tab or page. A favorite is Momentum, which offers a new lovely photo each day, plus a spot for favorite links and daily tasks. But there are more! Prioritab offers a space to record goals for the day, the week, and the month, and counts down how much time is left in each. This one offers a lovely photo plus a daily Bible verse. Here’s an article that lists twelve of these extensions!
- A simple way to communicate with parents is through the Google Calendar created by your Google Classroom classes. Set the visibility of the classes calendar to “public,” and then share the calendar address with families. How do you do that? This article will tell you! And don’t forget about me…I can help too!
Please sign up using my calendar (you’ll see the page for it up above) if you’d like me to work with you or with your department–I’d love to hear about what you’re doing!
