Found a great video tutorial for your students that goes for waaaay too long? Need to break it down into bite-sized pieces? Using the new feature that determines when your video starts and stops in Google Slides, embed the same video over and over on multiple slides, having each one start and stop at different points. Use subheadings on each slide to identify what each part of the video is about.

Found this helpful post while looking for Chromebook workarounds for using Scrivener. Pretty helpful...
Making Google Docs Act Like Scrivener

This isn't perfect, but it is a workable system that allows you to organize your story in a similar fashion to the way Scrivener does. It's pretty simple and easy to setup. The key to making it work is documentation.

Here's What I Did:

1. Set up a folder devoted to the book I'm writing.
2. Create a separate document within this folder for each chapter I'll be writing.
3. Create two additional documents (see the arrow that is on the left side of the screen pointing to the many documents). These documents are called Characters and Index.


This document lists every character in the book, their descriptions and anything I need to know about them. If I come up with a new character while I'm writing, I will add them to this document. If, during the course of the story, a character is wounded or changed in some way, I will document the event and the chapter in which it takes place in this document. The more information you list here, the easier your life becomes for those moments when you will inevitably need it. You may even want to copy/paste phrases for important events that you can use to quickly search for if you need to get to a specific location in the document. I don't do that, but I've thought about it.


This second document is the important one. It's basically your entire book in one and two sentences. I will keep this document open while I'm writing the current chapter. It allows me to easily refer back to some past event that happened three chapters earlier or to remember where a specific character is heading if I'm in the middle of edits and can't remember who is doing what three chapters from now. This is a good tool for those times when you are going back through your book and adding the little details that lead up to a big moment or a shocking reveal at the end of the book.

That Second Arrow

If you look on the right side of the screen, you will see an arrow pointing to the right. This is an area where you can add a short description. I use this area to remind me what my goals are for that chapter. You may come up with a better way to use that field. If you do, let me know.

This type of workflow isn't for everyone, but it's the one I use while I'm writing on a Chromebook. If it works for you, great! If not, that's fine too.

There is a second part to this post that deals with setting up virtual index cards. You can find that post here:
