Back to school season doesn’t have to be stressful. In this video, I’ll be sharing my favorite ways to cut back on the paper load and make your classroom run smoother DIGITALLY! From collecting parent information with Google Forms™, to sending out paperless newsletters, you’ll learn time-saving tips that will change the way you prepare for the busy BTS season!

This 19 minute video includes:

  • Tutorial on how to use Google Forms™ to collect parent contact information
  • Tutorial on how to use Google Slides™ to create and send out a parent newsletter
  • Tutorial on how to use Google Forms™ to engage students with an digital escape challenge
  • Downloadable PDF with my session handout (free template of my newsletter and other tech examples)

Note: These tips work best in elementary classrooms, but can be easily adapted for upper grades too!

I shared these paperless tips at the 2018 Teach With Tech Online Conference. It was such a hit, I've decided to add this video to my shop for all to learn from!
