We can now get notified when changes are made to our Google Docs and we can add summaries to them. My favorite story for today: Canva has added a super useful collaborative Whiteboard mode. Also, Microsoft has made some awesome updates to how Reflect operates in Microsoft Teams. And, unfortunately, I’ve got some sad news about one of the most innovative edtech tools of the last 2 decades.
