Excellent Google Drive Resources for Teachers

Excellent Google Drive Resources for Teachers | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

On the occasion of the first back-to-school week, I compiled this list of excellent resources to help teachers make the best of Google Drive in their classrooms. I firmly believe that Google Drive is one of the elemental web tools with huge educational potential that every teacher should be able to tap into. However, the thing with so many of Google's services is that their power and usefulness lies in their hidden features. The resources below cover some of these features.

"The iPhone and iPad make great email companions, thanks to the built-in Mail app. Unfortunately, large attachments can eat lots of data, or worse, not send at all. Luckily services like Dropbox are making it easier than ever to share files via email, no matter how big they are. Once you've got the file in Dropbox, you can send it via the Mail app in just a few taps!"

How to Record Slow Motion Video with the iPhone Camera - OSXDaily

How to Record Slow Motion Video with the iPhone Camera - OSXDaily | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

"The newest iPhone models support the recording of slow motion video with the native Camera app. This nifty feature was first introduced as a major part of the iPhone 5s camera and is able to shoot 720p movies at 120 frames per second. But that doesn’t mean that slow-motion is limited only to the latest and greatest iPhones, in fact, you can use third party apps to record slow motion video on older iPhone models too. In either case, the result are really fancy slow motion videos, which can be a great way to emphasize particular scenes, events, or just to see the action better of whatever you’re recording."
