Exporting Stickies

I like to use Stickies to keep some quick records like my Staff Development hours.  At the end of the year, our computers are often re-imaged and we would lose that information.  This quick video will show you how to export your Stickies and then import them to Google Drive where you can store and edit them.

The New Drive

If you were to win the lottery and leave the district, your gmail account would be closed which means any documents you created and shared in Google Drive would also go away.  You may have things your team uses or refers to that you wouldn't want to lose.  This video shows how to change the ownership of a document.

There are written directions here, if you prefer.
