Tech Talks Episode 2: Photo Slideshow for a Google Site

This week's episode shows teachers how to create a Google Slideshow for photos so they can have a photo slideshow on their website. Remember to check in with the office to make sure that all students in the photos have parent permission to be represented on your classroom website.

As promised last week, watch for a short episode about how to slow down or speed up a YouTube video as you watch it.

Again, if you need one-on-one assistance, just ask.

Tech Talks Episode 01: Photo Upload to Drive for Website

As a way to give quick lessons and advice about instructional technology, I will be doing short Tech Talk videos. Some of the videos will be talking points, but most will be step-by-step "how to" videos. The great thing about video lessons is that you can pause, rewind, slow down/speed up the YouTube video as you like (sounds like a 60 second or less lesson that I can post next week). As I always say, if you need one-on-one assistance after viewing a lesson, let me know.

Episode 01 is a follow-up to the creation of our classroom websites. Some teachers are ready to start adding photos to their sites. Next week I will add a lesson on creating a photo slideshow of students for the classroom sites.
