GMail allows you to easily move an email address that was placed in the wrong spot while composing an email.
In other words, lets say you placed two emails in the To: section but really needed one of those email address in the Cc: (carbon copy section). To fix this issue, all you need to do is click on the email address and drag it to the appropriate section.
Over the summer, I have been converting our tech website for the high school manually into the New Google Sites. In a way, it has been great because I have been able to truly look through what is on our tech website and weed through the items and information that is no longer valid. (That's one draw back from how quickly technology changes) That spring cleaning feel in the summer time!
In thinking about how I wanted to design the site, I was trying to find a way in which staff at the high school would only have access to certain pages, and not students. I had used the page level permission feature in the old Google Sites before. This was helpful - as long as the staff member was logged in with their Google account, they would see about 6 different tabs on the website where as students and the rest of the public would only see abut 3 tabs. Currently, the New Google Sites does not have page level permissions - maybe a feature that will show up in the future? Who knows...
Math teachers know that typing math notation in Google Docs takes a bit of work. Rachel Fairhurst, a middle school math teacher in the Bedford School District, created a Google Doc with a list of shortcuts for her students so that they can type math expressions efficiently and correctly without having to spend the time to find what they are looking for in the equation tool bar. A sample of shortcuts can be seen in the image below. To view the full list of shortcuts that Rachel felt were important for her students click on this Google Doc link.
The trick to getting started in a Google Doc is to open the equation editor in the Google Document under the insert window. There is even a shortcut to inserting an equation without the need of moving the curser to the insert window.
Chromebook Shortcut:Alt + I + E (Alt + I will open the Insert window. E then opens the Equation editor)
Mac Shortcut:Ctrl + Option + I + E (Ctrl + Option + I will open the Insert window. E then opens the Equation edit…
Inspiration Inspiration #1 Over the summer, I was introduced to a new term/concept known as a #hyperdoc. You might say well isn't a hyperdoc just a Google Document that has hyperdocs in it? Well, the answer is no. A hyperdoc is a document that has links to other artifacts, videos, articles, games, reviews, etc. Through these links students learn about a concept as well as share their own learning and thoughts with others. To learn more about #hyperdocs, and the work that Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, and Sarah Landis have done, click HERE. I decided to make an attempt with creating a Chromebook challenge hyperdoc (even though it leans more on the side of students mostly learning information and not sharing as much information).
I was inspired to produce a Chromebook challenge after hearing about how Lee's Summit R-7 School District created a Chromebook challenge for their students. Their great resource can be found on their technology website HERE. What I like about…
