In this episode

In episode 4, I share my favourite¬†EdTech Quote…
Technology cannot replace teachers but teachers who know how to use technology will replace teachers who don’t #TTTips

I mention a few apps that can be used to back up photos and introduce to you Google Photos, which I use to automatically back up my photos. Pictures can be backed up from various sources, which include Camera, WhatsApp, Download, Facebook, Bluetooth, Screenshots etc.

Photos backed up can be viewed on any device as long as you sign in with your Gmail account. You can also view your photos on the web via the link – photos.google.com.

The following can be done as well:

* Create an event album
* Share a link to a collection of pictures
* Create a photo collage
* Create a short video with pictures, with free background music etc

To enjoy this,

* You need a Gmail account, so sign up for one if you don’t already have one.
* Install Google Photos from the Play Store
* Sign in with your Gmail account
* Grant app permission to automatically back up photos
