Not Geeky Way to See Your Grid and Share Tab in Google Meet

Not Geeky Way to See Your Grid and Share Tab in Google Meet After banging my head on the desk, I came up with this (obvious) not geeky solution for being able to see your Google Meet and your screen shared tab at the same time. It is a temporary solution as I continue to look for a better solution. ***** I'd love to know more about how my videos are supporting your needs.

Hi, Blog Followers! In this "late afternoon" edition of my techie Tuesday, I'm trying to give you two easy things, one harder piece for the more confident users wanting to try syncing Google Classroom with Synergy, and a heads up on how to get a free TCEA membership.  Without further ado, here is my list of 4 quick tips to get you through this week: Let me know what you think! If you have any questions, just let me know. I am always here to help! (And, yes, I did miss the last two weeks of Techie Tuesdays. Thank you to those of you who were checking in on me. It's been a challenging two weeks.)

Splitting Your Screen for Remote Teaching

Splitting Your Screen for Remote Teaching This brief tutorial will walk you through two ways to split your screen to view both your remote learners and your content. I am using a Mac and a Chrome Browser. One method uses the built in screen arrangement feature on my Mac and then the other uses the Dualless extension for Chrome, which you can find here: https://ift.tt/1ngUX6n ***** I'd love to know more about how my videos are supporting your needs.

We have our Gimkit subscription!

Hi, Blog Followers! I am THRILLED to tell you that we now have a license for Gimkit for grades 6-12. Huge thanks to Greg Applestein and Ben Harris for collaborating on budgets to make it happen and then Lori Spencer and Lori Wood for handling the money piece. I am going to be the administrator of the platform and will handle accounts, etc. for it. If you would like to have a Gimkit account, please click this link to join our subscription . For those of you who are using it with students under the age of 13, I am actively working to figure out an easy way for us to get permission from parents in order to use Gimkit with their students. This is a piece of their agreement to sign our student data privacy contract, so it will need to be done. Stay tuned for an update on how I'll tackle this.
