What the SHEETS?!?

When creating a new Google Sheet, by default, it will have one sheet tab at the bottom of the page. The program is designed so that you can have a maximum of 200 sheets.

To add additional sheets, you can click on the plus sign in the sheets toolbar.

One sheet will be added. To rename the sheet, click on the dropdown arrow next to the Sheet, read more

I want to Shoot My Screen!

OK so now I have your attention! If we re-arrange the words a bit “I want to take a shot of my screen” aah yes screen shots but what are they good for?

Many websites while allowing students to do drill and practice and take quizzes, they lack the ability to save or record scores or results. Have the students take a screenshot of their results and submit via google classroom as an attached image.

Screenshots are a way of capturing a picture of your screen, be it your chromebook, a desktop computer or even your cell phone. The secret to unlocking this feature is to know the magic key combinations or button presses for your particular device. read more

Magically Make a Copy

Do you have to constantly tell your students or other people to make a copy of your document so that they can edit their own copy?  Well, you can force this to happen just by changing the link of the file.

Go up to the top of your file (google doc, slides, etc) and go to the end of the URL.  Delete the word “edit” and everything after it.

Type the word “copy” in it’s place. Then click return.

When you give this link to other people, it will automatically prompt them to make a copy of your file. In fact, they won’t even be able to see your file, until they click on the Make a Copy button. read more

Review your Google app permissions!

I just LOVE the Sign in with Google buttons that you find all over the web.

They are great because they use a protocol called OAUTH to securely log you in using your Google account. This means you don’t have to remember yet another username and password.

We get so used to clicking these buttons to log in to sites and that means we’re racking up a bunch of sites that have access to our Google accounts.

Today, I’m going to show you how to manage the connected apps and sites that you’ve authorized with your Google account. We can use this tip to review these apps and sites to see if we really use them and if we want them to have access to our Google account. read more

Calculated Moves

I see a lot of teachers and students using iPhone’s Calculator tool in class.  Just like with any calculator, it is easy to hit the wrong number key.  Rather than clearing the entire calculation and starting over  [sigh!], there is a quick way to backup. To clear the last digit entered, simply swipe left or right on the calculation window. If you need to backup a few more spaces, swipe the number of digits you want to erase.
