GotTechED the Podcast was created in 2018 by Nick Johnson and Eric Guise with one, singular goal: to provide quality, tech-centric professional development (PD) to busy teachers on the move. As educators who have always been passionate about PD, Nick and Guise have attended and created hundreds of hours of professional learning experiences for teachers, but there has always been one problem ... time! Attending full-day workshops and conferences is difficult and stressful due to missed class time and added prep. With GotTechED, Nick and Guise hope to provide busy teachers a way to access educational PD at their convenience.

    Welcome back to GotTechED the podcast this is Episode #83 called “13 Creative EdTech Tools/Tricks to Make Classroom Activities Come Alive." In this episode we’ll share X ideas for making your classroom activities come alive with creativity and increased student engagement.

    In a Google Doc use the https://workspace.google.com/marketplace/app/docsecrets/933719089841 (Doc Secrets AddOn). Want to keep some text in your document private while sharing the rest of it with others? DocSecrets can help. Just add a password to the DocSecrets sidebar, then type any secret text you want to add to your document in the add-on's Insert field. You can select existing text on the page and click Censor text to hide it—but that text would still be visible in the document's history, making it not nearly as private. Then, to see the hidden text, your collaborators will have to both know your password and have the DocSecrets add-on installed—otherwise all they'll see is colored lines and dashes.
    Nick - Why so few fonts in Docs. Don't download a fonts add-on in Google Docs—none are better than the built-in Google Fonts integration. Just click the down arrow on the fonts menu and select More Fonts.
