Easily Ungroup Shared Calendars

In the Google Help Forums, I spotted the following question. “If there was a tool for ungrouping and grouping shared Google Calendars?” Naturally, my reply was you can group shared calendars by checking them off individually. However, there is a tool for users to ungroup all at once by using the following steps.

  1. Open Google Calendar
  2. Click Option Settings (3 vertical dots) for the Calendar to leave open
  3. Select “Display this Only”

I suggested to the user about grouping calendars together and embedding into a New Google Site. My idea would provide a simple method for viewing several team member calendars at once.

You may find the following Google Help Center resources beneficial:

  1. CALENDAR: Add a Google Calendar to your Website
  2. NEW SITES:Add Google Files Video & More
    • Scroll to Section: Add HTML, CSS, or JavaScript code to your site

Immigrants can be innovative too!

The world is going through an evolution where technology seems to be changing all one does. I’d like to refer to this as the “Digital Evolution”. This new way of living has separated the old and the young into two groups. The “Digital Native” was born holding a touch screen from day one with the the older population falling into the category of the “Immigrant”. The immigrant is the person who is learning how to navigate through this new strange digitally enhanced world.

Funny thing about this evolution many feel the natives are naturally savvy and know how to use what the immigrants refer to as technology. This doesn’t necessarily mean one has the ability to integrate technological  tools in an effective manner positively supporting daily life. It takes the creative innovative thinker along with having the technology skills to benefit everyone. One doesn’t have to be born a digital native to learn the language and culture to succeed with making a positive change to support both the educators and students of the world.

All one needs is the will to accept change and an open mind to embrace new ways of doing what they’ve always done. After living in this world for over a half of century I have witness change can be good and sometimes can even make what we do easier. In the end it takes the commitment of both the young and old communicating along with collaborating together to create positive change. Success lies within a community which depends on both the native and the immigrant working in unison with one another. As an immigrant I look forward to learning from the native as we forge together learning how to integrate educational technology.
