Turns out that 2016 is a year of change and growth in many areas of my life. To keep up with the times, I have decided to branch out with my own professional blog. While it will be educational "techy" in nature, I know that parts of me will seep through as well. My prayer is that this will be a place for you to learn about some of my favorite EdTech tools, hear the great things that the teachers in my district are doing with technology in the classroom, keep up with the events that I attend, and anything else that pertains to my learning journey.
If you are reading this, please leave a comment below and tell me what you think so far! I am always looking to learn, grow, and improve! Plus, any blog topic ideas are welcome. I am here to serve!

My new Google obsession is Google Keep. Maybe it's because I yearn to be organized. Maybe it's because I have OCD tendencies. Maybe it's because I haven't found the best way to keep checklists and todo notes...until now.
Google Keep is a simple note-taking application. You can create voice memos, checklists, and insert pictures. What sets Google Keep apart from other checklist tools (like Trello, which I also love) is that it links to the awesome world of Google. I can share notes with family members or team mates WITHOUT them having to create an account...because they already have one! My school district is a GAFE (Google Apps for Education) district so all of my peers AND students have accounts where I can share organizational notes. I even got Superintendent Cooper on board with Keep and he has notes for each administrator that he shares with them. Google Keep is our new "agenda" for team meetings. It is working well so far, and I'll "keep" you updated! (hehe!)
TCEA recently blogged about this note-taking platform and included some ideas for student use in the classroom. These are the ideas that they shared:

Do you use Google Keep? How do you utilize this tool? I would love to hear from you!
