  • Robyn Wood 11 May 2015 10:00am () in Digital Dark Ages - keeping track of photos

    I'm not sure if I'm in the 'right' group to raise this or not.  I have just finished reading the article Are you keeping track of our school's data?  in the May issue of  INTERFACE.  Each year we used to keep a photographic record of the different events that occurred in our school on our intranet, however since we have moved to the cloud, we have dropped this practice and as a result have 'lost' several years worth of photographs.  Can anyone tell me how they are storing photos in their school so that come their next anniversary/jubilee they will have photos to use?

    Hi Johan

    We've been on gmail for the past year.  The biggest benefit we see is the ubiquity of using this service - i.e. you can access it from anywhere without having to go through a school server. Also it means that we no longer need a massive server - so is fiscally beneficial too.

    Hi Kirsty

    We have been using it as part of our daily notices for a good year or more.  We have it set up in the simplest way possible  i.e. as a google doc shared amongst all the staff.  We also run our 'weeknotes' which is our business staff meeting using a similar system.

    Sorry to be bombarding this group with questions about Chromebooks, but is anyone able to tell me whether or not the Google Management module for managing chromebooks can be added retrospectively?  We are thinking of purchasing some without the management capability however we want to know if we decided we want this feature later on can we add it?  Thanks heaps

    Thanks Hamish - that is really helpful as we are only looking at purchasing 100.

    We are looking to purchase some Chromebooks and have a question.  Is it worth purchasing the Google Apps Management Console Management?  If so what are the benefits?  Thanks heaps Smile

    We are looking at purchasing 100x Chromebooks.  This is possibly a dumb question (but that's why I'm asking it)... can Chromebooks be managed through Meraki and if so is anyone using this and how have you found it?

    Thanks Smile

    Hi Andy and Belinda

    Thanks for your advice.  I have now emailed them - which is a perfect solution for what we are wanting to do.  I will contact N4L and check into the settings and will look into the photosync app.  Appreciate your help.
