Resource Roundup--Google Apps, iPad, and Cake!

Google Apps

Google Classroom:  Who Deleted Student Answers?! (Teacher Tech blog)
This post explains well how collaborative editing by students on a Google Doc or Sheet works. It also gives tips on presenting this concept to students for the first time AND shows how you can figure out who the "jokester" was if someone else's work is deleted or altered!

Learn how to use custom fonts, language settings, and image layering. I often dissuade students from doing too much customizing and thus throwing design rules out the window. However, these tips can be used effectively as well!

Flubaroo is a Google Sheets Add-on that helps automatically grade tests and quizzes that you created in Google Forms. If you'd like to try Forms and Flubaroo, we can put our heads together and figure it out.

iPad and iPhone

The Control Center is what you see when you slide up from the bottom of your iPad and iPhone screens. Learn more about the tools that you can access from your Control Center.

Blended Learning

English teacher Catlin Tucker writes one of my favorite blogs. And she's now the author of a new book, Blended Learning for Grades 4-12. Read more about it on the Teacher Tech blog. This is one I'm definitely adding to my Amazon Wishlist for summer reading!

Friday Food Flash!

And finally, this recipe for chocolate chip bundt cake sounds easy and delicious. If you make it, I'll be glad to sample it for you!
