Tonya's Tech Tips
This district has finally rolled out a fix for our printer issues this year. Students should now be able to print from a desktop or laptop. It should also default to the nearest printer. If you find this is not accurate, please write a work order or let me know!
Add a Star to Files & Folders
I have a select amount of folders and files in my Google Drive that I access on a daily basis. Did you know you could add a star to the file or folder to save you time? For example: My daily announcement slides I display in class or the media center sign-out sheet.
Convert Word files to Google Docs Automatically
Switching your word documents? Want to same time? Select this setting and every time you upload a word document, it converts automatically to a Google Doc! See Below:
Open Google Drive
On the far right, select the Gear icon.
Covert to Google Docs
Select the box next to Convert uploaded files to Google Docs.
Google Classroom Update!
Help a Student Out!
PLEASE use ONLY PDFs or all Google (Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms) in Google Classroom. Word, Excel, PowerPoint will not allow students real-time collaboration or typing onto the sheet either! You would be surprised how many students we have to do not even have Microsoft at home.
