    We are looking at future thinking ideas for students to share their google presentations or videos with the class. At present we have a data projector connected to a teacher laptop and know that we can do it this way, but we want to give students more control. Students are mostly using chromebooks. Any ideas appreciated!

    Thanks

    Thanks for that Nathaniel - it was the conclusion I had come to! I have been told that there is an infrared device / thing that might control my screen too - still investigating that.

    Does anyone have any experience / knowledge about the use of Google Chromebox in schools? We are investigating replacing some of our desktops with these. We are a GAFE school, byod with quite a few chromebooks. 

    Thanks

    Just wondering if there are schools using Google Chromebox and what the pros and cons are! I would love to hear from anyone who has some knowledge of these.

    Thanks

    Thanks Hamish.

    I am sharing folders rather than individual files. My main concern is with the couple of teachers who will just go ahead and make changes to a file before making a copy.

    I am now thinking that since all files are word files, and anyone I've shared the folder/s with will have to download or make a copy, that this won't be an issue and that I can everyone editing rights to all the files within each folder rather than just viewing rights. Am I right?

    Thanks for all the help and suggestions. Just a few more questions - there may be easy obvious answers to these which my tired brain can't quite get to grips with at present.

    Most of our folders contain Word files which I have now uploaded to the main account. If I share these with editing rights (we want teachers to be able to make their own changes to many of the files) will any changes they make affect everyone's files? Or is it easier to share via the link so that they have to then add the folder to their drive? Or does somebody have another suggestions?

    Thanks

    I have my laptop on a docking station but want to be able to show slide shows etct when working with small groups - away from the docking station! What possibilities are available to control my desktop from another location in my room? I know I could use an ipad but was wondering how else I might be able to do this.

    Thanks

    Thanks Hamish - yes it does make sense. We already have an office account so creating a Curriculum account should work the same for us. I already have administration rights for Google apps, so this should not be a problem to create(I'm hoping)!

    I have been following this discussion with interest. We are a Google apps school but have all our curriculum folders etc still on our school server. I am thinking what a great idea it would be have them all in Google apps environment. Hamish, how do I go about creating an admin type account to be the main store for these OR do we need to use our office admin account? Could we create a Curriculum account? How?

    Thanks
