Google Sites is so easy to use and tips like this make it fun too! Check out Shawn Beard's post on making scrolling banners for your Google Site with Google Slides.

A little reminder that Sheets might not look as slick but it packs the power when it comes to organization, no page limit and as many layers as you want. If you ever want to know about formulas or conditional formatting to "automate" a sheet, just let me know, I get very excited about doing that!

"If you are looking to communicate more effectively with your students, then you might want to try using a spreadsheet. It may take a little getting used to, but this can be a great tool for making learning efficient, fun, and transparent."

This is a great system developed by Alice Keeler that allows you to watch and comment to your students while they write in an easier way than many open individual Google Docs by using a custom Google Slides template and script. Definitely worth checking out, thanks for the tip Abby Johnson!

You can make recordings of yourself reading books (saved in Drive) and hyperlink them to pictures of the book covers on your website (Google Sites) for an easy to access reading resource for your students. If you want to try this homemade electronic audio book solution you can do it all with a Chromebook, reach out to me and I'd be happy to walk you through it. Nice job Susie Kostal!

If you haven't taken a look at the Templates available for Google Forms, it's worth a look to save time on things you are already doing or to give you ideas on things you could be using Forms for.

I've been encouraging students and teachers to use the new Google Sites in place of Slides for any presentation that could also serve as a resource for others beyond the class project time and that would benefit from less "page space" limitations, this just makes that an even more powerful option with the capability for a specific audience!

This is a well-written cautionary and informative piece that hits home for me. I'm glad to have read it and see the problem-solving approaches from the kids. Also good to have another gentle reminder that when at home and away from work to "STEL" as the kids put it here (Stop Texting, Enjoy Life).

"A Google A Day" would be a great quick exercise for strengthening critical thought for students individually or in groups on a regular basis. Honing your search engine techniques are a great way to work on problem-solving skills that apply to all areas of life!
