Tip Sheet #9 - November 8, 2022
A Feast of
As the holidays approach, we're taking a small sabbatical from our Weekly Tip Sheets to work on another BIG project. Thank you so much for all of the kind words this year-- we appreciate hearing from you!
Did you know that at the very end of each edition, you can click "Yes, It's Helpful" and we'll see that, too?
To make it up to you, this week's Tip Sheet is stuffed with activities that we hope will last you through the Thanksgiving Break. Enjoy, and Happy November!!
"Google Slides + Google Forms" United in One Classroom-focused App
Here at TeacherMade, you've been guiding us as we build the most Teacher-friendly classroom platform available today. We consider every feature request and try to get the top requests up and running quickly. But there's one that's been lagging behind.
Remember how you asked to load two or more PDFs and join them into one activity? It seems like such a simple request and you're not sure why it's been taking us so long, right? Well, it's a super-complex programming job and has required a re-architecting of our user interface. We've been at it for months and we're almost ready to release it.
But we know how any change in the user interface can be unwelcome when you're pressed for time and have a class full of students waiting. "Where did it go?" "What is this new thing?" These might be some thoughts you've had in the past after an app update.
Our new switch to the Slide Model is a really BIG change; it's TeacherMade's version of Google Slides and Google Forms united together in one interface to meet the needs of the classroom. While it will be welcome by most of us, some will not want it sprung on them. Though you'll be able to load multiple PDFs and join them into one interactivity, you may want a chance to play with things when you have some free time.
We ran the survey last week. Right now, it's a 60/40 split between the ASAPs and December Break camps with a couple of hundred Teachers responding. We'd love to hear from a couple hundred more, so please consider clicking on the survey link below. We want to do what's best for each of you.
And thank you so much to those who have already weighed in. If you've opted into being a Beta Tester, we'll be in touch in the next two weeks.
