Take Control of Your Email Settings

Bitmoji ImageHave you ever received an email sent to a large group of people? 
Of course you have. 

Have you had the experience of a cluttered inbox resulting from person after person sending a "reply to all" when it a reply to the original sender would suffice and in many cases be more appropriate?
Of course you have.
Have you ever been that person who sent a reply to all, only to realize moments later that you wanted to reply only to the original sender? Yikes! I'm guessing the answer is yes to that as well.
What if I told you that you could change your default settings in Gmail to reply instead of reply to all?
You heard me right. In fact is a very simple process. 
So simple, I have a feeling you will be wondering why you didn't do it sooner.
Take a look at my video.

Introducing I Have Who Has Webapps to Engage with Students in Virtual Classrooms

In my classroom,  

games were always a favorite. I have been wracking my brain trying to find a simple solution for translating this game into an online format that I can use with students virtually.

If you have followed me in other places like Twitter, IG, FB, or even my microcasts, you will likely have heard me talk about my discovery of #nocode app building at the beginning of 2020. Talk about great timing! After many restless nights, I finally figured out a way to turn this classroom favorite into a stand alone

the GREAT NEWS for you is that I am adding everything I create to my TPT store! Even better, you can sign up to become a BETA tester when new apps become available. In exchange for your feedback, I will let you have the app for FREE or at a reduced price. The early versions of the I Have, Who Has webapps are 

The upside is that makes them really easy to implement right away. The downside is that you do not have the ability to customize it in any way. I am already in development of a companion teacher app to allow for some customizability. The sooner you opt-in for the BETA group, the greater your chances of getting the companion app for free!

By now you may be wondering what the apps look like. Here's a little peak at the opening screen for the multiplication and division versions.  


       Did I mention that these are available separately or you can save $$ on the 

As if that wasn't enough, we are approaching the Back to School season which means TPT is having their annual BTS sale! You can get up to 25% off the already reduced bundle price. This really is a steal. So, if you are ready to take a closer look, go ahead and click through to the webapps section of my store right now.

Spark Debate and Encourage Student Response to Real News

"Fake News" has continued to grow as a real issue and upper elementary is a great place to start some debate but where should you look for the "real news" and how can you share it easily with students in a format that will encourage open and polite debate? This blog post will address all of that!

Podcast Episode 3 Cross-post

Hey there! I don't usually share this but I'm starting to rethink the things that I share and how I share them. So here goes nothing.  This is a cross-post. Not sure when or where I embraced the mentality that cross-posting was less desirable. I'm giving that some serious reconsideration during 2018. Like many people, I maintain more than one presence on the Internet. Some are personal and some are professional. Today I want to let everyone who follows my professional presence here as the TechedOutTeacher aware of a podcast series that I have just recently begun.

New Year, New Ideas

2018 is here! I have to be honest, I knew that while I worked on my doctorate I was falling behind with my claim as the "Teched Out Teacher". Sure I have access to a lot of techie devices but there are so many things that I could be taking advantage of. There are so many tools, add-ons, widgets, apps, and the like. Even if I hadn't been consumed with scholarly reading and research, I have a feeling that I might not have been able to keep up with all the latest and greatest techie tools.
