Windows 10 Clipboard
“I am thankful for windows clipboard. It helps by bringing up the things that you have copied lately and stores it in case you need it again. To access this, simply hold the windows key and ’V’. It will open the clipboard for you.”

Canva for Educators
“I’m grateful for Canva! It makes creating signs and presentations so easy. Canva for Educators gives teachers added features that aren’t usually free.” 
Shelly Ellender, CPSB Tech Support Facilitator
Outlook’s Snooze 
“Outlook’s Snooze helps me follow up on teacher requests and calendar events. Snooze works just like it does on my phone alarm. When I an email, I can right-click on a message, select Snooze, and select when I need to address it.” 
Mary Beth Sonnier, CPSB Tech Facilitator
Embed It and Forget It 
“When we create content in Canva, then click to Share and select the Embed button, we can copy that code to embed it and forget it. Once embedded on a Canvas course or in multiple courses or on a teacher website, once the design is updated in Canva, the update is reflected in all the places where the design has been embedded.  This simplifies updating weekly agendas or newsletters in multiple places.” 
Anissa Fontenot, CPSB Tech Facilitator
Outlook’s Flagged Email List 
“Flagged email lists can get long, taking up space at the top of your inbox. Outlook now isolates them to be available in To Do as Flagged Email where you can check them off your list once its been done. The list only shows tasks from messages flagged in the last 30 days, and it’ll show up to 100 of your most recently flagged messages.” 
Ashley Guillory, CPSB Tech Facilitator
QR Code Creators in Browsers
“Chrome and Edge both have an in-browser QR code generator. Once made, QR codes can be inserted in an email, added to a website, pasted into a newsletter, printed on stickers, or added to classroom handouts and posters.”
Holly Doga, CPSB Tech Facilitator
