Using Google Photos to build collaborative albums
Google has a cloud photo management system - Google Photos - which some consider to be the current best solution available.

Imagine a team of teachers or students using a single album to curate photos from a trip or experience. It works online and via the Andro...

I am really keen to get my hands on one of the Chromebits! We have 9 display screens in school being run with Chromeboxes. Swapping them out for some Chromebits could be really useful - and then we can re-purpose the Chromeboxes.

My new MacChromeBook

My 2007/2008 MacBook that has sat in the garage for the last couple of years is now a functioning Chromebook thanks to +Neverware. An interesting idea of re-purposing old devices a Chromebooks.

We have a BYOD 1:1 approach. Maybe this will help some of the students struggling with 'legacy' devices!

All staff and students that use the Ecolint 'Google Apps for Education' domains (so anybody with a @ecolint.ch or @learning.ecolint.ch email address) has a YouTube account. YouTube playlists are a convenient place to curate a set of YouTube clips for a whole number of reasons. Maybe you want to provide a playlist to help students revise. Maybe you are working with a set of colleagues to pool resources used for teaching a certain unit...

This week's post for staff at International School of Geneva - Campus des Nations
