TECH to CHECK This Summer
Google Slides - New FeatureGoogle Slides now offers native support for audio files. You can now insert audio into your Google Slide presentations. First, you will need to save the file onto your Google Drive. Then go to your slideshow, click on "File" and "Insert Audio". You will then be able to control the timing of the audio playback, looping, and location of the audio icon on any slide. You can even hide the audio and still have it play when you transition to a slide.
Google Sheets - New Feature
Did you know you can now add images into individual cells in Google Sheets. You can upload your own images, or you can use Internet images, icons, graphics, etc. It's a great way to add visual cues and resources for your visual learners. It's a wonderful way to easily and visually organize your information. Just select Insert-Image-Image in Cell. You can even do this on your mobile device and upload any image you have stored there.
Google Mail - New Feature
Scheduler - Gmail now makes it possible for you to schedule email to send any time you want. It is so handy to get an email ready when you have the time, and then have it sent precisely when you want it to get sent. Just compose your email; then click on the down arrow on the send button. Choose "Schedule send," pick a date and time, and voila!
Remove.bg allows you to quickly and easily remove the background of images and icons. There does need to be a person, brand, or central item located foremost in the image, but then it works like a charm. I really enjoy adding transparent graphics to slideshows, worksheets, newsletters, etc. Remove.bg makes it so easy.
