Google “Spark”: I've always found technology integration interesting, especially when online creativity tools became possible. I don't even remember how or when I started using Google, but once I switched, that was it! I think being introduced Google Forms and realizing how Google Drive worked on all devices is when I realized just how productive Google tools can help educators become. The longer I use it, the harder it is to use other tools, especially paid tools, for my day to day productivity and resource creation.

Linda Hummer (Ohio) - Thank you for all you do! I love listening to the podcast and trying out the ideas you share! I have an app smash- use the new cc feature in slides along with screencastify. Students that are shy or not comfortable talking in front of the class could record themselves ahead of time and then have it played during class or the teacher can view when they have time. This will also help the teacher when they are accessing the project. There are times when you are grading while students are presenting that you miss things. Having the video to replay showing what they said would be extremely helpful! Thanks!
