Living in such a connected world, it’s becoming more important that educators model good digital citizenship for students on a daily basis. When adding images to slide presentations and resources, it has gotten easier to find media that is labeled for reuse because there are now over 1.1 billion works in the Creative Commons.

In order to eliminate having to cite the work of someone else, while also modeling best practice, Google Photos has made it easier than ever for users to create, curate and share images, gifs and video clips from any connected device. From mobile devices, Google Photos can be set to automatically backup and sync photos and videos with an unlimited amount of storage.

Looking for the right image to represent an idea? The search capabilities within the app are outstanding! There’s no need to tag pictures with keywords. Google automatically does the work. Album sharing is another great feature. Users can collaborate on albums and their name will appear on the file preview. Shared albums in the classroom promotes student media creation and citation. As your Google Photo library grows, its seamless integration with G Suite makes using your own images easier than ever!
Simply drag images from a Google Photos album to a Slides, Docs, or Draw.
