  • 9:00 am: Reach the 4 C’s of 21st Century Learning with HyperDocs, GC 306
    • We all want our students to be creative, collaborative, communicators and critical thinkers, but are you enabling your students to learn this way? HyperDocs just might help get you there. HyperDocs are to worksheets as what Instagram is to passing notes in class. They are interactive, visually engaging Google Docs that allow students explore and engage in topics in depth, and at their own pace. Join me today to learn more about using and crafting HyperDocs for your students, and make the jump to hyperspace with your instruction!
  • 10:10 am: Keep It Together With Google Keep, GC 306
    • You may not have heard of Google Keep, but you NEED to know about it. Keep is an incredible and easy to use tool for organizing all of the bits of information busy educators tend to collect whenever, wherever, that always seems to get lost. Keep allows you to bring together notes, links, photos – really anything you can grab with your computer, tablet and phone! Beyond gathering and organizing your digital ‘stuff,’ you can share your notes, collaborate with others, set reminders… even drag-n-drop text and photos into your Google Docs! Join me today and make Google Keep an integral part of your daily workflow.

Below is my quick list of things you can do with your Google Docs, Slides & Sheet URLs. With any of these tricks, replace whatever follows the last ‘/’ of your document URL, which will follow the REALLY LONG unique document ID. For example:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TzmsjhO35cyQKw7BgRGbnlGrdGrZkZMH0QKtmcw47M/edit?usp=sharing

Replace whatever is in bold in your doc that follows that last ‘/’ with the following to do some cool things:

  • /copy – will prompt the user to create a copy of that Doc/Slides/Sheets doc. Your original isn’t touched, and they own the copy!
  • /preview – will bring up your Doc/Slides/Sheets in a new window, with no headers or menus – just the content.
  • /present – will open your Slide show in a new window, full screen ready to present, with no headers or menus

Am I missing any? I’ll add more as I remember or learn new ones!
