Topic Titles in Google Classroom

I discovered a very cool thing this week when poking around in Google Classrooms working on fixes. A couple of you wonderful teachers have little images as a part of your topic titles and I want to share that wondrous ability with everyone.

You simply visit an emoticon website like this one
Then highlight the emoji you want to use, copy it, and paste it in your Google Classroom Topic Title! No tricks or secret codes. Just a simple Copy and Paste. You can rename existing topics to add images.

BIG Thanks to Mrs. Lafond and Mrs. Brown for bringing this to my attention.

Shared with me and Starred in Google Drive

You might be noticing that your “Shared with Me” section of Google Drive has gone crazy with copies of every thing you have assigned to students in Google Classroom and every Google Classroom you are a teacher on.
Once you locate that file you needed in there through the search bar, add it to your Starred files to find it faster in the future.
Check out the screen grabs below to preview that process.
