After binge listening to Google Teacher Tribe Podcast I thought it might be good for me to clean up all the tips and tutorials I have created to help teachers and students in the school I work at along with anyone who checks them out online.
I was pumped to see that I now have over 50+ tips and tried to organize them a bit better. It is not perfect, but something I working to make even nicer for the user(I need more time in my day!)
