A (Disappointing) Update on Grammar Check in Google Drive

At Friday's technology workshops at the high school, staff members once again inquired about grammar checking in Google Drive. I had not seen anything that would work with Google Drive, but, having not looked recently, I said that I'd look into it again and report back.

Unfortunately, I don't have any huge change to report. Ginger, the spelling and grammar checker I shared the last time, still will not communicate with Google Drive, likely in large part, because of the permissions involved. Nor has another option come along that claims to check grammar at all never mind well.

So, this article that I found about spelling and grammar checking Google Drive items still remains the standard (unfortunately). I am seeing a couple tools popping up in Documents and Sheets that claim to check grammar. But the one I tried, ProWritingAid, is only a 14 day trial, so that won't help our kiddos. It also didn't seem to be intuitive to me since I had to run the add-on to check my grammar. We all know our kiddos won't take that extra step since they are used to other word processors checking automatically.

I'll keep an ear out to see if any useful ones appear and report if I see/hear of anything.

Hide Dropped Students in Infinite Campus

I had a teacher ask me if there was a way to hide or remove students who are no longer in your class. The answer is maybe. It depends on if they are officially dropped from your class and appearing as red in your roster and gradebook. If not, then no, you cannot remove them until they have been unenrolled from the class. If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
