Google Photos is so incredibly easy to use for capturing videos and images in my classroom. The tool crosses platforms, being user friendly with iPad, Android tablet or an old burner phone no longer used. Just download the Google Photos app, link to my school GAFE account and you are ready to record the magic of learning.
The feature I just love is creating short movie highlights using photos or videos that I have in my photo library. The only downside is this feature doesn’t work on the Chrome browser for a Mac, PC or Chromebook. I have used both iPad and Nexus 7 Android tablets.
Here how I create and use this amazing tool.
Parents tell me they appreciate the movies I share. Many say it's a nice classroom conversation starter with their child. In addition, Google Photos Movies give parent(s), guardian(s) and important adults in a child’s life, a window into the classroom. Yes, this tool is a must for any teacher!
