Groups can come together and communicate, grow, learn, build upon each other’s ideas. Built-up as an educator. Was so in her own world. Now, gets perspective from others.

Dan Stitzel (Ohio) -- Keep for personal organizations, notes, checklists, copy/paste links. Excellent for sharing with other people as well. Share individual notes with co-teacher. Share a note that you start, both add to it. Create a checklist for a student and share with a student so only you two see it.

Updated tracker from show notes in episode 65.
Laura Conway (Colorado): Military spouse headed overseas next year. Asking how to move files from the school account.
Kim McClintic (Texas): Hi Matt and Katie, I would like to know if you have any suggestions for how to keep track of assignments that are turned into Google classroom.I have a digital journal or notebook that I have had students doing for a novel study and every week I add new slides to their journals. However, if I’m still grading work that they turned in they cannot begin work for the new assignment until I return it to them. Do you have any suggestions for how I could assign work for them and allow them to continue working without me having to return the journal to them so that I can continue grading while they continue working?
Amber Houk (North Carolina): Using Google Voice to listen to her recording a song story. Students call in for a new song story each day.
