This teacher outlines 5 ways they use Google Forms at their school.  They include: flipping the classroom and checking that homework has been done; using Flubaroo to test students; PLC - personal learning checklist - students giving feedback on how they are going understanding key ideas; feedback - from students to teachers or from students to students; and measuring progress - using a 10 point scale to assess understanding at various points in the lesson.

This is Americanised, but the concept is right. You can search for public domain and Creative Commons images on Google now, and ensure you know where the material comes from. Links are much better than downloads when it comes to avoiding copyright issues.

10 vivid maps of Earth: Matter of perspective | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
Global maps have a remarkable ability to put things in perspective. Ever since the Apollo 17 astronauts snapped the famous photo called "Blue Marble," our fragile place in the cosmos has been cast in a new light. Now with more sophisticated satellite imagery, we can view Earth from space in more enlightening ways that expand our understanding of the planet.

Here are 10 vivid maps by NASA that might just change how you look at the world. (Text: Bryan Nelson)
