New GSuite Shortcut

Check out the tip below to quickly start a new Doc, Sheet, or Slide ( worked for me, too). Just type in the search bar at the top. Or, check out this Chrome Extension to do the same thing. Easily start a new file without opening Google Drive!

More Ways to Use Flipgrid

I love Flipgrid-thanks Stacey J for introducting me to it! This week, Free Tech for Teachers posted 7 ways to use Flipgrid. I love the quesion of the day idea-what a way to connect with your students daily (in an asynchronous way) during remote learning. It's quick and easy.The guest speaker idea is pretty cool, too. And, if you want something to do this last week, have your kids submit a review of a book they've read lately (or another old favorite) here! That idea is mentioned by Richard Byrne, too, on his post!

Check out the Mixtape option below. That would also be a cool way to wind down the year-by celebrating the "greatest hits" of the school year!
