Summer Updates for Google Apps

Google apps has updated a few things that will REALLY make our lives easier when incorporating technology on the iPads. Below are two new improvements:

1. You can now add images using the Google Slides app! This makes Google slides a great alternative for collaborative presentations.

2. You can now make a copy of a document in the Google Drive app (without going out like we did last year through the Chrome browser with the QR codes). This is a huge improvement and time saver for classrooms. To make a copy of a document on the iPad, go to -->share --->export ---> make a copy

Google Classroom?

Want to try it? If so, let us know. We are looking for teachers who would like to learn more about this along with us and pilot Google Classroom with their students. Check out the video below to see a little about how it works.

Email us (Kerri, Toni, or me) if you're interested!
