Technology Tips of the Week: Google Update- Copy Comments and Suggestions in Docs, Sheets, and Slides!
HERE is the official update page from G Suite.
I know I have talked to a few teachers here at EHS about how to make a copy of Google Doc and also copy over the comments you have created to guide students. In the past, you needed to use a 3rd party app such as “Copy Comments” chrome extension. Recently, G Suite has updated Docs, Sheets, and Slides to be able to do this! Yay!
Why would you want to copy comments for students?
HERE is an example (created by Eric Curts, along with his article on this update) of how it can be used in a classroom for directions.
File- “Make a Copy”- then check “Copy
comments and suggestions”:
Sculptris- 3D Modeling Software that is free!
Sculptris is a free 3D Modeling software that is currently installed in Lab 2 in the EHS Library. I am currently researching how the files can be exported to use with the 3D printer! Recently, I gave Rachel Cote’s Ceramics class a tutorial on how to use the software to integrate technology into their content of form.
This is a Yoda I created on Sculptris
Here is a video tutorial I created as well! (You can also print out the Sculptris “Cheat Sheet” to guide you!)
Please add to the below list of technology tools (chrome extensions, websites, apps) that you are using with the freshman chromebooks. I hope to make a great resource for staff!
