DISD Tuesday Tech Talk

Dawn Baxter & Judy Silva - 6th Grade Math - Intermediate - 6th grade math used the Google extension "Read & Write" to give a test for students that need oral testing as an accommodation. "We used Chromebooks and sent the link to those students and they used headphones and the extension read the test to them. Worked like a charm!"

If YOUR classroom is using Twitter to contact experts, collaborate with classrooms around the globe or just to post updates, please let Donna know!
I LOVE this. Facebook - everyone is on Facebook. Even kiddos. Do you ever wonder what it would be like if historical figures or authors from the past were on Facebook? What would they say? What would they publish? Check out this "Fakebook." This was created in Google Slides and you can simply click on each area to change accordingly. What a great way to have students learn more about historical figures, authors, etc. The following is one that I started on George Washington and I'll have to admit, I learned quite a bit that I didn't already know about our First President! The students can get really creative with posts and hashtags!
(Check out Martha's hashtag to George below.)
Tuesday Tech Tip
I've had several people ask about unsharing a document in Google Drive. This is a really easy thing to do!
1. Click on the document that you wish to unshare.
2. Click the blue "Share" button at the top right corner of the document.
3. Click on the name of the person.
4. In the next window, click the "X" icon next to each user you no longer want to share the document with.
(You can also change edit, comment, and view in this window.)
