Did you know?
Quickly Find Your Car with Your iPhone
Leaving the stadium, ballpark, concert, state fair or other big event and want to easily find where you parked...there’s a way! If your iPhone is connected to your car using CarPlay, or paired using Bluetooth, the Apple Maps app automatically marks where you park. When in the Apple Maps app, tap “Parked Car” to find your way back to your ride. You may have to swipe up from the bottom to see the “Parked Car” option. For more, click here.



Removing a Calendar in Google

How to See a List of Your Calendar Items
Simply click the Agenda button in the upper right, when you’re in your Google Calendar. You can still turn on/off which calendar’s events you see on the left, just as you can in the traditional calendar view. This comes in handy if you need to print a list.



How To Present From a Chromebook
If you want students presenting from their own Chromebooks, here’s a quick shortcut to make it pretty painless. From OMG!Chrome!  "If you plan on connecting your Chromebook to an external monitor (or TV) at some point then the ‘Mirror Monitor’ shortcut is a neat one. Rather than add an additional workspace it simply mirrors the Chromebook’s screen."




What if?
Version History in Google Docs - How It Can Help With Writing
This post from +Eric Curts talks about & walks you through using Version History (“...whenever someone makes a change to a Google Doc (or Slides, Sheets, Drawings, etc.) Google tracks each change, who made the change, and when it was made.”) and how it can now save previous versions of writing that can be useful in the writing process. See also his post on 6 awesome uses for Revision (Version) History



Pixel Art Activities for any Subject with Google Sheets
This post from +Eric Curts has ideas, a template (and links to more templates), directions and a short list of other possibilities i.e. art, tech skills, characters, concepts, retelling, area, and mapping.
