Tuesday Tech Tip: Google Images & Videos

Good afternoon,

Some of you may have noticed a new look to GoogleDocsHere is a guided tour of the new look and one very promising new feature–Images and Videos!

I also want to give kudos to these folks who have been integrating technology into their work lately:

  • Greg Gorres, Michelle Kruse, and Jen McGorray are using Animoto.
  • Dave Bailey and JenMcGorray created a Facebook Fan Page for New Reflections and are using copyright-friendly images for student projects.
  • Laurie Keys is using Google Earth and Skype (to Hong Kong!)
  • Natalie Slaby skypes regularly with her brother’s classroom in Minnesota.
  • Darlene Barth is experimenting with blogging and using Google Calendar for daily assignments.
  • Dave Sisler, Rachel Bohlman, and Lisa Marek are using Gaggle for students to communicate via email with community members.
  • Cindy Rosch is video-taping new teachers in their natural habitats.
  • Stephanie Unertl is using Google Presentations and copyright-friendly images with 4th graders to collaborate on a story for publishing.
  • Lisa Sebranek, Barb Bauer, Kris Onsager, and Dave Sisler are using GoogleDocs for student story writing and publishing.
  • Maria Marquis and the music teachers are using a Google Form for parent volunteers to sign up for Solo & Ensemble.

  • Principals are using Google Calendar.
