Tips n' Tidbits

If you can tell me where this year has gone, I'd love to know!  It has been nothing short of whirlwind of a year, full of excitement, new learning, new friends, and a lot of reflection on how to move forward.
This month's Breakfast Bytes has end of the year information for teachers in my district, but also covers a couple of quick tips such as: incognito mode, pinning and muting tabs, and how to delete multiple pictures with the swipe of your finger on iOs devices.
Hopefully you will be able to walk away with a new tidbit of information!

Breakfast Bytes

Part of my new position is to offer what we call Breakfast Bytes each and every month to the staff in my building. Each month I try to share an app and how it can best be utilized within the curriculum and sometimes I share tips and tidbits based on what I am seeing would be beneficial. You can find all of the Breakfast Bytes I've done this year on the Breakfast Bytes tab above. 

Here is this month's slidedeck. The initial pages are related to shared calendars in Google but the iPad tip at the end shows how to use Markup on your photos if you are running iOs10. Super cool feature!
