Really good video outline the process of adding and editing images in  Google Docs or Slides. It is very easy to follow - in fact, this could be shown to students who have a tendency to use images a lot. It includes information on 'masking' in Google Slides.

A little awkward using a mouse but if you have a touch screen or a pen of some sort, it could be useful to add unusual symbols or equations.

Google Apps for iPad Users - Summit Resources

Google Apps for iPad Users - Summit Resources | Middle School Technology | Scoop.it
Lots of people were turning up at Google Summit workshops with an iPad, only to be disappointed that many things that work on a computer either don't work at all on an iPad, or work very differently.  

Although they have many advantages, its useful to remember that an iPad is not the same as a conventional computer. Many of the things that one can do on a laptop are definitely not the same experience on an iPad. It can be a little frustrating!

Google tools have typically been designed to run in a web browser and aim to be device-agnostic, but that ideal does not always translate well into an iPad experience.  The best experience on an iPad is when you use purpose built apps, and with the right apps it is quite possible to live comfortably in a Google world on an iPad.

My friend and colleague Chris Betcher is an inveterate sharer. He's also a regular presenter at Google Summits and other events around the country and beyond. At his school the students use iPads within the classroom. This heady mix means that Chris writes from authentic personal knowledge and experience. In this post, (part of a much more extensive site focussed on things Google. If you're looking for tips on how to best use Google tools on your iPad then this post is a great summary.

They included: shuffling answers, pre-filling forms and skipping pages depending on the choice of answer (as in the example above).

Best of all, just follow Alice Keeler (http://www.alicekeeler.com/) for some fantastically innovative ideas for using Google stuff in the classroom.

Change your Apple ID
Learn how to change the email address that you use as your Apple ID.

In most cases, your Apple ID is also the primary email address of your Apple ID account. You can change your Apple ID to any other email address you control, as long as it's not already in use as an Apple ID. If your email address ends with @icloud.com, @me.com, or @mac.com, it's already an Apple ID. 
Use these steps to reset your Apple ID:
Sign out of iCloud, the iTunes Store, App Store, FaceTime, Find My Friends, Find My iPhone, and iMessage on each device that uses your current Apple ID for these services.
Go to My Apple ID.
Select Manage your Apple ID and sign in. Forgot your password?
Select Edit next to Apple ID and Primary Email Address.
Enter the email address that you want to use as your Apple ID, then select Save Changes. Apple will send a verification email to that address.
Open the email from Apple, then click Verify Now. Didn't receive the email?
When the My Apple ID page opens, sign in with your new Apple ID email address and password. When you see a message that verification is complete, you can start using your updated Apple ID.
Update the features and services that you use with Apple ID, so that each one is using your updated Apple ID.
If you need to change the Apple ID that's signed in to your iOS device, use these steps to sign out, then back in with a different Apple ID.

Time Machine - Frequently Asked Questions 2. What can Time Machine back up, and where can it put it’s backups?

Time Machine can back up FROM
Any internal or directly-connected (USB, FireWire, Thunderbolt, eSATA) drive/partition formatted with any variation of Mac OSX Extended (HFS+).
In most cases, by default it will:
•Include all internal HFS+ disks/partitions (including externals connected via eSATA)
•Exclude all external disks/partitions, including the one it's backing-up to (but not those connected via eSATA)
You can easily modify the handling of individual HFS+ volumes. See question #10.
It can easily back up multiple Macs. See question #4 for details.
It can easily back up multiple drives/partitions on a single Mac. See question #32 for details.
It will back-up your entire system (OSX, configuration, applications, user data, settings, preferences, etc. (less most system work files, caches, logs, trash, etc.), unless you specifically exclude things (see question #10 and/or question #11).
It cannot back up a Boot Camp or other Windows-formatted volume. The WinClone app may work for that, or check the Apple Discussions Boot Camp forum.
It cannot back up a USB thumb drive.
It cannot back up any network drive, including a Time Capsule, a USB drive connected to a Time Capsule or Airport Extreme, or a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. The CarbonCopyCloner ($40 U.S. with 30-day free trial) or ChronoSync apps (about $40 U.S.) may be alternatives.
