And finally the ability to edit tables comes to their mobile platforms. Well done Google. Some great updates here.
Today’s updates to the Docs, Sheets, and Slides iOS apps bring you enhanced support for iPhone 6/6+ and general bug fixes and improvements. Plus, you can now view and edit text in tables in Docs and insert, move, resize and rotate text boxes, shapes and lines in the updated Slides app. 

If you don’t already have the apps installed, you can grab them here:

One of the things I like about having a Google Apps Edu account is that it connects with loads of other services. Check out my quick overview of VideoNot.es which syncs typed notes to online videos.

This post highlights the benefits of Google Chrome and the web store to provide a range of tools for use in Learning & Teaching.

One of my favourites is Pixlr: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pixlr-editor/icmaknaampgiegkcjlimdiidlhopknpk?hl=en

Think of it as a cut down version of Photoshop that works in your browser.
Google Chrome is a very popular browser used all over the world, some people are still unaware of its benefits it can bestow upon them, especially in the faculty of education.With the use of some powerful Chrome extensions, i.e., add-ons, education can be made more dynamic and effective than ever before

I am not necessarily a fan of MOOCs, (mainly for the way their over exposure & the fact they are not always "open"). But this year I am putting aside those reservations & looking to see how I can exploit them as a tool for staff development in the areas of Ed Tech & Open Ed. This is s list if courses I am sharing with staff. Wouldn't it be great if I could get all of my academic colleagues to undertake at least one of these?
