School-friendly YouTube video links
Nervous about showing YouTube videos and seeing the ads or suggested videos in the sidebar? Use www.safeshare.tv. It is very user-friendly; just copy and paste the URL of the YouTube video you'd like to use, and www.safeshare.tv will convert it to a video clip that you don't need to worry about showing to your students. Check out the short video tutorial below. Put safeshare.tv as a shortcut on your desktop so it's always ready to use. Thanks to Jean Oswald at WW for this great tip!
Simplify your emails
Create a group email list for such things as your PLC to prevent typing each name every time you correspond. These instructions will explain step by step how to create a group and also how to manage it. (e.g. adding or deleting members). Thanks again to Jean Oswald for this helpful info.
