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.

    Throughout To The Edge, Kyle shares his story of how risks have shaped him into the person and educator that he is today. From risks that resulted in immediate success to ones that elicited failure and regret, you surely will be inspired by Kyle's story. Take yourself to the edge and become more of a risk-taker in your life and career! #ToTheEdgeEDU
    Mandy Froehlich https://www.amazon.com/Divergent-EDU-Challenging-assumptions-limitations/dp/1732248796 (Divergent EDU: Challenging assumptions and limitations to create a culture of innovation)
    The concept of being innovative can be made to sound so simple. We think of a new idea. We take a risk and implement the new idea. We fail, learn, and move forward. But what if the development of the innovative thinking isn’t the only roadblock? What if so much of your day is spent solving the issues around you that even the attempt at developing new ideas is not even on your radar? What if you long to have more divergent teachers in your school district or to be that divergent teacher, but you simply don’t know where to start? This is where I was as a Technology Integrator several years ago. I knew what innovative teaching looked like, but I didn’t know how to support all the other areas that were taking teachers away from having the time and the brain space to think innovatively and divergently.

    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.
