Iceflowers Cubed

The only thing better than one ice cube with a floral design is two ice cubes with said design.

Today’s Gratitude Item: Getting our google meet settings sorted after a frustrating day spent trying to figure out why teachers were not always hosts for a given meet. It turns out that the google default is to allow everyone in an organisation to start Meets and the first person in is automatically the host. So if a student was the first one in a session, they were the unwitting host. The fixed settings are an improvement but it does mean that if students are early, they get an error screen telling them to wait and the system does not appear to signal them when their teacher joins the meet. This is a fairly epic fail on the part of Google Classroom but one that we get to live with for now.
