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

I recently worked with a high school teacher who was looking for a way to migrate her Google Slide decks to Jamboard to allow her to annotate them with her iPad.

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! Sincerely,  Susie Simmons Technology Coach for  Bonny Eagle Middle School &a

Open Office Hours and Tech Tips for March 1-5

If you'd like to connect with me, you can find directions at this link . As more and more teachers experiment with synchronous teaching, I thought that it would be a good idea to remind folks that having a lag is normal . Some days will be better than others. And there are a ton of variables that affect it. So please know that it's not something that can be easily fixed. Without further ado, here are my four tips for this week including my first iPad tip for you. Let me know what you think!
