So, today, all Madison County TIMS are sharing technology tips with our faculties! You can find LOTS of tech tips today on Twitter using #MadCoTIMSGive!

Google Drive Tips for Teachers:

1- Save images to Google Drive
There is a handy way to save images you come across in websites to your Google Drive. Installing the "save to Google Drive" chrome extension will enable you to save images through right clicking and choosing "save to Google Drive" then selecting "save link to Google Drive" or" save image to Google Drive".

2- Attach files from Google Drive to Gmail
One of the best things about Google Drive is that it is automatically linked to other Google services like Google Plus and Gmail. Users now can attach files right from their Google Drive to Gmail emails by simply clicking on "insert files using Google Drive " button. This technique is better than the traditional way of uploading files to emails because it does not require any file size limit because a link is generated for the email receiver to download.
