Tech Tips

  • Google Photos folder in Google Drive
    To view your photos and videos in Google Drive:

    Computer
    Go to Google Drive.
    Click Google Photos on the left.

    Android
    Open the Drive app.
    Touch the menu icon  at the top left and then Google Photos.

    iOS 
    Open the Drive app.
    Touch the menu icon  at the top left and then Google Photos.

    Organize your photos & videos into Google Drive folders
    You can copy, move around, and edit your Google photos in Google Drive, but those changes will not be reflected in Google+. 

    IMPORTANT
    If you edit a photo in Google+, your edits will only appear in the photo in Google+, not in the photo saved in your Drive folder. To have the edited photo appear in your Drive folder, download the edited photo in Google+ and upload it to your Drive folder. 

    If you delete photos or videos from the Google Photos folder in Drive, they will also be deleted in Google+.
    Your automatically backed up photos are private unless you choose to share them. If you have shared your Google Photos folder in Drive with others, the people you've shared with will be able to see any new photos and videos that are added to the folder.

    You can control the Google Photos feature via Drive Settings > General > “Automatically put your Google Photos into a folder in My Drive.”

  • YouTube Autoplay on by Default
    Using YouTube videos in class? You should know that YouTube automatically plays related videos until you pause videos or you disable autoplay. "When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next," explains Google. The video may not be one that you would choose to play.


    You can disable autoplay by unchecking "autoplay" in the right sidebar or in the player's settings menu. YouTube saves the setting in a cookie, so it will no longer play related videos automatically until you enable the feature again or clear YouTube cookies.

    YouTube has a video and a help center article that offer more information about this feature:

    "Once a video is over, you'll see a 10 second countdown that tells you what's going to play next. The next video that plays is determined by your viewing history. If you want more time before the next video starts, pause the countdown by scrolling down past the video player. You can also pause the countdown by typing, either a comment or something into the search box. Also, you can click 'Cancel' on the countdown screen to stop the next video from playing."

  • Teacher Dashboard Tutorials
    Teacher Dashboard is a workflow management tool used in many of our elementary classrooms. Classroom teachers use Teacher Dashboard's simple yet powerful interface to manage, organize, and access their students' work in Google Apps. TD features enable teachers to share and copy files, to push out pre-made templates to students such as docs, spreadsheets, and websites. The dashboard displays student folders and files for the teacher making it a snap to view a student's writing piece and provide instant feedback (insert Comments) or review the work anytime, from anywhere there is an available internet connection.

    If you are using Teacher Dashboard in your classroom be sure to check out these tutorials:
