Google Docs is ideal for using in teaching and learning. This is a quick video that shows you how to set up a Google Doc and share it with your students in seconds. Google Docs are free for anyone with a Google Account and your students do not need Google Docs to work with this tool. This is a great tool for collaborative work both in and outside the classroom.

Google Docs-Tips for using in the classroom is exactly that. It is a quick practical video that shows you some really useful tips so that you can use Google Docs with your students. It shows you how to set up a table, how to shorten the URL, how to get the students to access the document etc. Short but very practical video for any teacher thinking of using Google Docs in the classroom.
ThingsLink allows you to create interactive images that students can click on to access videos, texts, pictures, podcasts etc. So for example you could upload a map of Italy and then add clickable hotspots for different cities like Rome, Naples, Florence etc. This is a great tool that can be used both by teachers and students. It is free, easy to use and has loads of uses.
Tripline is a really fun tool that is great for writing and presentation activities. You can take a map, mark out a route and add information at different points on the route and then you can play it back like a video. Ideal for writing activities around holidays, trips, famous voyages and journeys. Great as a presentation tool too and very easy to use.
Google Slides
Google Slides are very similar to PowerPoint. The difference of course is that you make the slides online and save them on your Google Drive. This is an ideal tool for collaboration and sharing. I have used this tool extensively both in class and at home. Great way of getting groups of students working on one set of slides and combines nicely with getting the students to present the slides afterwards too. A quick introduction to Google Slides.
