- Karen McMillen (@mcteach) shared Excellent Gmail Tips for Teachers. This is a must read (and maybe print and keep near your computer!) for anyone who has ever lost an email. What many people don't realize is that there are specific ways that you should search. This post covers those ways.
- Karen also shared Classroom Posters and Resources for Teaching Students Digital Citizenship. (Karen is a rockstar!) This is a great read for all teachers because we are all responsible for teaching digital citizenship.
- Jerry Blumengarten (@cybraryman1) created and shared a New Teacher page on his blog. If you have never visited Jerry's site you are missing out on some fantastic resources! There is a page for EVERYTHING related to education.
- Sean Junkins (@sjunkins) shared 38 Ideas to use Google Drive in Class. This is a fantastic list of how to incorporate docs, slides, sheets, and forms into your routine. Don't feel like you have to do everything on this list. Pick a few things and run with it!
