As remote teaching and learning continues, creating breakout rooms and other activities where small groups can work is an important part of today's "classrooms." This not only allows students to see their classmates in a small group setting, but it allows them to work through problems and projects together as they would have in a regular classroom.

Have you ever needed to turn a page in a document so that it is landscape versus portrait? Now you can in Google Docs! Google recently announced that you can now easily work with multiple page orientations in Docs. You can change the orientation on a per section basis. This allows you to add content that requires a wider format.

According to Kasey Bell from Shake Up Learning, you should share your Google Slides lessons in Google Meet or Zoom by publishing them to the web first. This gives you a unique link that anyone can view. It is a full window player, so you only see the slides one at a time. Use this unique link when sharing your screen in Zoom or Meet instead of clicking on “present.” The present button goes full screen on your monitor. This allows you to see more than one window at once, which allows you to see other tabs during your presentation.
