How to Find Image Metadata and More

A couple of years ago I published a video and blog post about how to find image metadata. Since then the tool that I featured in that video has gone offline. Today, I recorded a new video that features two other methods for finding image sources and image metadata. 

In the video that is embedded below I demonstrate how to use two tools. The first is Google Lens and its built-in image source tool. The second is a tool called Jimpl that can be used to find image metadata.

Knowing that image metadata exists and that it can be found with tools like Jimpl is a digital citizenship lesson for every student who is taking digital photographs and posting them online.

Webinar - Blending Technology Into Outdoor Learning

The last two days have been the first truly warm and sunny spring days of the year here in western Maine. While playing with our puppy and soaking up the sunshine yesterday afternoon I said to myself, "self, it's time to host your technology and outdoor learning webinar." So last night I updated my webinar resources and scheduled the webinar for next Tuesday at 4pm ET. 

On April 18th at 4pm ET I'm hosting my Practical Ed Tech webinar titled Blending Technology Into Outdoor Learning. By attending this webinar you'll learn five ways that you can use technology to enhance outdoor learning experiences. In the webinar I'll cover geocaching, augmented reality, data logging, digital mapping, and using technology to solve some outdoor mysteries.

Yes, the webinar will be recorded for those who register in advance. 

Three Helpful Google Sites Updates

Earlier this year I published 29 Google Sites tutorials. I'll soon need to add a 30th tutorial to that list because this week Google released three helpful updates to Google Sites

The latest updates to Google Sites give you more design control and improve the collaboration process in Google Sites. 

In Google Sites you can now add frames. Frames let you control the overall width of your site and the content within it. You can apply custom colors to your frames to make your content stand out.

Another new design feature in Google Sites is the ability to adjust the alignment of buttons on your site's pages. Now when you select a button to add to a page you can also select the alignment of the button on the page. The alignment function for buttons is very similar to the alignment function for text. 

The third update to Google Sites that was announced this week is an improvement to the collaboration process. Now when you're collaborating on site development you will see the section of a page that your collaborator is working on in realtime. That should help to avoid accidentally overwriting your collaborator's work.
