How to search for Google Images
Whenever I present this to teachers, they are always so surprized. This video shows you how to search for images on Google which do not infringe copyright. It also shows you how to search for certain colours, types, sizes etc. It is just 5 minutes.
Vocaroo is one of the simplest podcasting tools in the internet. This is fabulous. With just a click of the button, you can create a podcast and then share it via e-mail, embed it in a blog or wiki or download the recording. It really doesn't come any easier than this

A brilliant tool for the Flipped Classroom
Probably my favourite tool of the moment. With Present.Me you can upload a PowerPoint presentation and then add your voice and your webcam to the recording. You can then share it on the internet or embed the content. A great way to way to share content with your students or get them to share content with you.

Set up your own blog with Blogger
I am always surprized when I give presentations on Blogger. It offers so many great ways of working with your students and it is so easy to set up. You just need a google account ( like gmail or google+) and Blogger comes free. Set up a class blog for all your students, set up a teacher blog for other teachers to read or get your students to create blogs individually or in pairs of groups. This set of videos will get you up and running.
