Wow, it's Digital Citizenship Week! What better way to spark a discussion about copyright and attribution than with using awesome images? Finding Creative Commons images through a CC Search (Google does this when inserting and searching within a Google App, too) is a good option for students. However, getting students to attribute those photos correctly can add time to the work exponentially. Photos for Class removes that hassle. It automatically adds a black ribbon across the bottom of the image with the appropriate attribution. Plus, it provides a link to the original in Flickr so you can add it somewhere else. Much thanks to Matt Miller, DitchThatTextbook.com, for the tip! http://photosforclass.com/ For even more Digital Citizenship resources, check out the Common Sense site: https://www.commonsense.org/education/digital-citizenship Happy Digital Citizenship Week!

W.O.W., Fall is here! Time to start thinking about pumpkins, cider, leaves, and Google Slides. Why Google Slides? Because Eric Curts has an amazing website, Control-Alt-Achieve with help guides, presentations, and other training resources for Google-related topics as well as other educational technology topics. A one-stop-shopping site for all kinds of tutorials and activity/lesson ideas. One of his current features is a template to build your own Jack-O-Lantern-- a great way to incorporate writing skills and add a little creativity to lessons! http://www.controlaltachieve.com/2017/09/build-jackolantern.html Happy Halloween!
