Share that Symbaloo

Today I had a great question on the easiest way to share Symbaloos with learners. Google Classroom was our first option but then we discussed simply sharing the Symbaloo address with students or to use to shorten the URL. If you aren't using I think it's a great tool to quickly share items. Go to to see our thoughts or click below.

Response Validation in Forms

I love when a teacher is using Digital Breakouts to make their class come alive but I like it, even more, when they create the "game" to be directly correlated to their curriculum. Today a great teacher asked me how she could do it and my answer was this link with directions, from Google Support, and the below short video. So excited for her students.

Forms + Sheets= Awesomeness

Classroom Banner

Change Slides or Google Drawing to 800x200 pixels to customize a Google Classroom header. Traci and I had fun making the video to explain.

Love the Forms!

I have always loved Google Forms but it seems it keeps getting more robust!

  • Upload files (images, docs, & more) outside of your domain. I think this is going to change the baby pictures in yearbooks forever! Do kids still buy yearbooks?
  • Use the Checkbox Grid to get more in depth information 
  • Use preferences to save time

Add a border to Docs

I love that we can now add borders and colors to paragraphs in Google Docs! Just select the text you want to jazz up, click on Format, and then choose paragraph styles! From there you can add borders, border style/color and fill color! This would be great to have kiddos choose one paragraph they want to be assessed before a final paper is turned in, to create a newsletter or visually appealing lessons, and to highlight big ideas.
