I was working with a principal this summer and showed her how to snooze an email and from her reaction, I realized that this would be good short tech tip to share with others.
I have written previous tips about curating your email (ART of Gmail ) November 2018 tech tip in that tech tip you had three choices Archive, Respond, ToDo.
The rationale for ART is that you want your inbox to have a few as possible messages save in it.
For some people, archiving is a rather drastic step as you tend to feel like you lose something when a message is no longer in your inbox and you need to get back to it. The solution is to snooze the message and have it return to your inbox sometime in the future.
Are there times when you want your Google Slides to be in a random order? How about if your slides are vocabulary terms and you are studying for a test… or how about if it is a class collaboration slide deck where each student has their own slide? Sometimes it is fun to have slides come up in random order. Here is how you can do this with the Slides add-on called Slides Randomizer.
To install this, open up a Slides presentation that you already have (or you can create a new one, too.) Go to your Add-ons menu and select Get add-ons.
I’m a 43-year-old male, so to say I’m well-versed in things like emojis and animated GIFs is utterly false! To me, they have always been a waste of time and unnecessary effort. But, emojis are part of our general vocabulary these days. Heck, even my parents, who are in their 70s, have gotten into using emojis.
In the past several months, I have come to the realization that Emoji can be a very powerful tool, especially in education. I highly recommend Tony Vincent’s presentation called “An Emoji Education” from ISTE 2018. Check it out here.
