Technology Tips and Tricks for School Leaders

Currently, I am snowed in enduring the massive snow storm here in Texas.  This time has given me a jumpstart on my to-do list at work and time to share items with you too.  


Texas Snow (10-12 inches)
I feel like I live in Colorado, because we have real snow not just ice and sleet.

If you aren't signed up for my newsletter, you may have missed some Technology Tips and Tricks in your inbox.  My newsletter subscription is 1x a month.  I try not to ever send more than that because I certainly don't have much time for that and people tend to not enjoy a lot of emails filling up their inbox.  

Let's take a look at my recent creations.

RECORD USING CANVA

If you struggle making a professional powerpoint and presentation, CANVA has some amazing templates. In addition, it can be used to record!  The steps are listed above and extremely easy.  

CREATE A PERSONALIZED AND PROFESSIONAL SIGNATURE 


Creating your email signature doesn't have to be difficult.  I created a document that will give you step-by-step directions on how to build your designs in CANVA and Google.  The directions work best if you add your new signature in CHROME.  

VOICE TYPING IN GOOGLE DOCS



Did you know that Google Docs has a new feature for Voice Typing?  Well...it might be new for me?  I saw this feature a few weeks ago, and thought I would never use it.  I brainstormed over and over again about why this might be needed.  I feel like I am a very fast typer.  I think blogging has increased that over the years, so why would I need it?  But the more I looked into this feature, I noticed more people using it for note taking. They could listen to the presenter while the computer scripted the presentation.  It might be good to use in meetings for documenting conversations or scripting during teacher observations.

Something to note: It will not stop and form new paragraphs or end sentences unless commanded verbally to begin a new sentence or paragraph.  For more formal writing, I wouldn't recommend this.  However, I can find some use from using it and maybe you can too.



Let me know if you have enjoyed these new tech tips and tricks.  If you do, I will continue to share some each month.
