Google has added a cool feature to Google Docs called Dropdowns. They are super-easy to create and are perfect for all kinds of project management.
I use them in a table for my Ed Tech’Niques poster ideas – one column has the name of the idea, the second column has resources I might want to use, and in the third, I have a drop-down menu for the month we used the idea. works great and it’s super-quick.
Google Drives are a fabulous tool. Access to all of your files on any device any time you need them is one of the best things about the 21st century, if you ask me. BUT… after you’ve used your Google Drive a while, things can get a bit cluttered, Even if you are a master of the advanced searching capabilities, you might find yourself staring at a list of 20 (or more) files all with the words “Unit Plan” in them. Just me?
Well, if it’s you too, I’ve got a great tip for you today.
To see what a document in your Drive contains without opening it up in a new tab, try this:
Click on the file once to select it
Click the “P” on your keyboard
Behold the preview of the document in your same window!
Now you can find the document quickly and you won’t have to close the seven tabs that opened while you were looking for the correct file!
