“I’m enjoying the podcast. In episode 5, a listener had a question about how to remove students from accessing certain files he shared with them. Y’all both offered great tips. I just wanted to offer a free solution at that scans your Drive, shows who has access to what files, and with one button push, you can revoke access to all files you’ve shared with that person. I use this for removing access to Google Drive files from departing employees.” –Aaron Kinney

    Hey Matt and Kasey, I listened to this podcast a few weeks ago and it inspired some thinking I had about digital story telling and the video options available in Google Slides. Thanks for the inspiration; keep up the great work. I made a blog post about it:

      Agree. Anyone know how to contact the creator of the app to ask them to update their Python?

    Hey, Matt and Kasey! I LOVE what you are doing here with Google Teacher Tribe. I teach American History to squirrely 8th graders and what you provide here is like a mini-EdCamp whenever I need an idea. Speaking of needing an idea, I need an idea or suggestion regarding embedding Youtube videos into my Google Drive. Our campus blocks Youtube access to our students, but not the teachers. I had a work-a-round with ClipConverterCC, but alas, they were in violation somehow. Now, I cannot find a way to embed videos in Google Classroom and Google apps like Slides, Docs, etc. so that my kids can access on their own. HELP! There are so many wonderful historical videos and this is really “burning my biscuits” as some might say here in Texas! Thank you!
