Photos for Class

Photos for Class provides a safe platform for students to use when searching for images. This site provides properly attributed, Creative Commons photos for school use! I love that the image is automatically cited to give the author credit. Check it out at www.photosforclass.com

Have you dipped your toes into Google Drive yet?

A good goal for summer is to test the waters with Google Drive. The county has provided us with district wide access. Your username is your fcssusername@forsythk12.org and your password is your regular password. Google Drive is a wonderful collaborative tool. You might consider using a Google Doc to collaboratively plan with your team for the 15-16 school year. Multiple users are able to edit the same doc simultaneously! If you haven't done so already, join the FCS Google course in itslearning. There are tons of resources and how tos to help familiarize you with the tools. Let me know if you have any questions!
