Move Google Slides to Jamboard for Digital Whiteboard Templates with Apple's Automator

How's it going? (Tech Tips for March 8-9)

Hello, Blog Followers. I hope that you have had an opportunity to check out your Poly Studio and your iPad/stylus. I know it's a lot of new hardware at once, but keep in mind that there are tons of folks around here (myself included) to support you. Just as a heads up, I now have an office space at the high school and will be splitting my time between the two buildings now. I will be based at the middle school on most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'll be heading to the high school after bus duty. That being said, most of my meetings will continue to be held via Google Meet and you can book me any day of the week. This move will simply give me an opportunity to be more present in the two schools that I serve. Without further ado, here are my four tips for this week.  Tip 3 is a super good one that many of you could benefit from. Let me know what you think!
