Teacher Spotlight

Mallory Johnson's kindergartners have been working hard on narratives and shared their stories using Wixie. Students recorded their stories along with pictures they created. Very cool!

Did you know?

You can download Google Drive to your computer and save files there just like you would with your documents folder.

Google will automatically upload anything you save there to your online Google Drive, which means everything is backed up--no risk of losing your documents! It also makes it easy to share assignments and resources via Google Classroom.

New Google Presentation Feature

You can now add a video directly from Google Drive into Google Presentations. You used to only be able to use the feature with Youtube. Now you can include self-made or student-made videos without having to place them on Youtube first!

Want to make a short video for your students? Try the app ExplainEverything--it lets you record video, include pictures and record narration.

Coming Soon!

New computers! The county is in the process of rolling out new computers to all elementary teachers. You may have heard friends at other schools have them already--sorry, we're end of the alphabet. We should have them by the end of April at the latest.

In the next couple months, your email will be transitioning to a cloud-based server on Outlook 365. Your email will look the same in Outlook on your desktop, but you will have way more storage and the web-based version is much sleeker and more user-friendly.

I want to hear from you--whether you have a project planned out or an idea you aren't sure how to make a reality, email me! I'm here to support you.
