Google Docs Shortcuts

With these new shortcuts come new ways to add these to your Bookmarks Bar. Simply add a new bookmark to your Bookmarks Bar (on any browser) and name it (New Doc, New Sheet, Etc.) and add the appropriate URL (doc.new, sheet.new, etc) and save it. Now, whenever you need to create a new document, just click on the appropriate bookmark. Check out the GIF below. This can be done for any of these shortcuts. Enjoy!

Turn Your Awesome Google Slides into an Interactive Nearpod

We all have a couple hundred Google Slides presos that we’ve borrowed, copied, and stolen over the years right? How about taking those bad boys and creating an interactive Nearpod preso with them? The beauty of this is that there is no need to recreate it, simply upload and transform! Here is a recipe card that goes over the How-To. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Nearpod, I challenge you to peep this and give it the ol’ college try. For those of you who are familiar with this, I challenge you to revisit this and beef up what you are presenting to your students. Beef, that’s making me hungry. Talk to you guys later! Deuces and as always, enjoy!
