Weekly Tech Update 5/24 to 5/28
The Dreaded Reply All Take 2
Years ago we used to have a Tech Tip of the Week sent to us from Diane Hayes. In one of those tech tips, Diane showed us how to change our default setting from Reply All in our Outlook e-mail to Reply. I have included the graphic, Reply vs. Reply All, to help you decide when you should reply vs. reply all. There is also a tutorial below to show you how to change your default setting in Outlook from Reply All to Reply. Please share with your colleagues :).
Smart Chips, Checklists, and Connecting
What are smart chips? Here is a link to the update that is scheduled starting June 7th. Check them out, it's pretty cool. As far as creating checklists, that will be a nice added feature that we can now deploy right within Docs and not have to use Google Sheets to accomplish the task of creating checkboxes. As far as Google Meet...yes the district has mandated Zoom for this school year and a determination for the upcoming school I suspect shall be forthcoming. However, if you want to collaborate on a Doc/Slides/or Sheets file and connect with a colleague right inside that file, check it out when we get the update applied to our accounts. Google Meet is already compliant with New York State.
Force Present Mode?
In the past, I have shared how to lock down your presentations with the File Publish to Web hack. However, did you know that you could force your Google Slides to be opened in Present Mode? Like most things, everything has a time and place. If you need suggestions on when you should use this neat little trick, please reach out.
Tuesdays R 4 Teachers
Every Tuesday starting May 4th (sorry about that, I dropped the ball on that one), NYSCATE Is offering free webinars on a variety of topics. Here is the upcoming schedule:
May 25th: Google Forms: Create and Assign/Share
June 1st: Navigating Digital Resources
June 8th: Fun Ways to Use Google Slides
Click on any of the above links will take you directly to the registration page for that session. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. All webinars start at 7 pm. Here is a direct link to the NYSCATE page which has more information, especially if you are looking for CTLE credit
Thank you Bridgit Millard for sharing this gem💎 !.
Getting in Compliance
In an effort to get in compliance with New York State's Data Privacy and Security Policy (NYS Ed Law 2D), WCSD has to check and make sure that the sites, software apps, and tools that are utilized at school and with our students are compliant. If there are sites, software apps, and tools that you are using with your students, could you please take a second and fill out the form below to let us know what those sites, software apps, and tools are? Fill it out as a team, a department, or on your own.
Here is the link to the form: https://forms.gle/tmbzuGeP7dttjZ6S8 or you can access it by clicking on the form icon located to the right.
Here is a link to more information on Ed Law 2D (provided by MORIC and RIC ONE).
