Hi. I have installed notifly and am finding it a really useful application. However... I have a Moto 360 watch and am having some issues. I am using notifly with GMail and WhatApps. These two apps no longer display notifications on my Moto 360 - it looks like they flash up and then disappear very quickly. Is it possible to have the Moto 360 working correctly and notifly working on the phone (Nexus 5X).

Thanks for your help!

A post to support staff and students getting their digital content out of their GAFE account as they leave the school.
Your @ecolint.ch, @learning.ecolint.ch or @pgce.ecolint.ch account is a 'Google Apps for Education' (GAFE) account. Depending on whether you are a staff member, a PGCE student or an Ecolint student dictates how much time you have to get any content out of your GAFE account before it is deactivated and then deleted. My advice is to decide upon what you want to keep and complete the necessary processes as soon as possible. Mail - start...

Google has a monopoly on the language of ‘search’. When referring to research on the internet do you ask students to do ‘a search for…’ or do you ask them to ‘google ...’? The Google search engine is definitely a very useful tool that can be used effectively and efficiently with the correct approach. However there are alternatives tools with which information can be found. The use of these alternatives is well worth exploring with yo...

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. This week Google has added the ability to create 'shared albums' - where multiple people can contribute images into a single collaborative album. This could be rather useful! 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
Using Google to research can be too big at times! Maybe you just want to give students a curated set of sources to search within. It is possible to create your own search engine that will only search within a certain set of sites or even sections of sites. 1. Go to cse.google.com and then click on 'Sign in to Custom Search Engine'. 2. Sign in with your school Google Apps for Education account [firstname.surname@ecol...
