WENDLAND TECHNOLOGY UPDATES

Google File Stream

Google used to have a program that allowed you to add Google Drive to Windows to make it function like any other folder on your computer. They have revamped it and renamed it to Google File Stream. The functionality is basically the same, except now it will look like a Network Drive versus a Folder. The main benefit of installing this on your computer is that you can now save everything to your Drive, where you have unlimited storage, and be able to access it from anywhere you have internet access.

Tutorial Requests Video

Kevin gives our staff the option to request students to their tutorial sessions through Google Forms. Take a look at the video below on HOW TO request students to tutorial.
Tutorial Request

Tutorial Scanning Sheets

Just a quick follow-up to our staff meeting & email.

  • Before the sheet will work properly you need to approve the script to run. That is found in the video below. It should take 2-3 minutes to get it to run.
  • Always make sure you are in the first column when scanning/typing in IDs.
  • I will be going around building by building over the next couple of weeks during tutorial to check in
  • If you are having any issues getting the script to run, please fill out this form HERE.

A WORTHY READ

It Pays to Be Yourself!

This is a good read and a great lesson to share with our students. Sometimes I feel like our students have their careers already picked out for them. This article talks about the importance of authenticity and the negative effects of trying to be someone you are not.
