The teachers are using my form, but when they go to the student responses on the Google Spreadsheet...the most current students added to the list are added to the bottom. I was hoping to be able to have all new students and entries at the top of the spreadsheet. Is that possible? I was able to arrange the sheet from Z-A using the date and time stamp category, but it doesn't seem to save that "sort setting". After I organize them, all of the new responses enter at the bottom of the time stamps.
Ahhh... I do love an organized person 😍. YES, of course I can help you with this! This time I will explain a la video:
We did the Google Keep Scavenger Hunt you showed us, but our pictures for the list went to the camera roll. WOW - you made it look so easy yesterday! What did we miss?
OHH! This is one of my all-time favorite activities, and as you may already know, Google Keep is one of my all-time favorite tools! This awesome G-Suite (horrible name!!) feature is WAY more than just for notes! Differentiate groups, generate creative writing, make collaborative check-lists for projects, record audio notes to check for fluency . . . the list goes on and on! But my favorite has got to be photos because you can keep them all in one place, AND they won't hog up space on your device!
Alas . . . it is that time of year when all kinds of changes are being announced, and whether they know it or not, LOTS of people have this question! The answer is YES . . . unless of course I am a really big fan of yours and I am mad that you're leaving. In that case, the answer is most definitely, "No, so you might as well stay."
Ok, ok fine. If you are getting ready to retire, leave your district, or graduate from your GAFE institution (as a student), and you want to preserve your Google account data, then you need to know about Google Takeout.
Ok, Ann, I've gotta try Google Keep. It sounds like a cool way to get and stay organized., but what else can I do with it in my classroom?
Have I mentioned lately that this is one of my FAVORITE tools?! I LOVE IT! Here are some new ways I've learned to use it since my last post, along with a little demo video for those who need/want to see it in action.
So I tried this crazy thing at Orchard Elementary School today.
I have several trainings coming up that I needed to plan, so I was going to be working on them at my desk all day. To accomplish this, I could have planted myself in my boring little cubicle at the Lincoln Center, but I had a brainstorm: I decided that instead of doing my office hours at my office today, I would do them at a real live school. I sent out an email (ok, more like 10 of them) to the staff offering my "services," and telling them that I would be working in the lab if anyone wanted to come and see me.
It looked like this:
It was so fun! I had people come ask how to set up a website, how to fix things on their blogs, how to make their Chrome browser more efficient, how to make movie trailers in iMovie, and more! I already have my next school scheduled, and I'm thinking I'll make this a weekly thing. I shall henceforth be serving as Geek on Demand!
