Having trouble with something?  You probably aren't the only one.  Below is a list of solutions to problems your classmates have had:
  • Creating a digital photo collage... There are several ways to do this. Here are a few:
    1. Use the Loupe Collage app to create shapes and designs out of your pictures (you should already have this loaded into your apps)
    2. Upload pictures to your Drive account
      • Use them in a Google Presentation (this can play automatically on your website)
  • Adding audio (sound) to a Google Presentation
  • Downloading SnagIt issues
    • You need to download both the SnagIt App and Extension from the Chrome Web Store (it won't work with only one)
  • BitStrip rejects your email address:
    • This has been happening to a few students.  If you have a non-school email address, use that instead.  If you don't, see Mrs. Asciola for help.
  • Using only a portion of a YouTube video:
    • Use TubeChop to "chop" only the portion of the video you want to use.
    • This can only be done at home as both Tube Chop and YouTube are bocked at school.

Directions & Ideas

There are many ways you can label the figurative language in your work.  I've listed a few ideas below to get you started:
  • Highlight in a variety of colors and then create a "color key"
  • Change the font color and create a "color key"
  • Use the comment feature in Google Docs 
  • Use the SnagIt app and extension to take screenshots of your work that you can then draw on and make notes.  The images are automatically saved to your Google Drive account.
  • Add "verbal labels" to your work using any of the following apps available in the Chrome Store:
As I come up with new ideas I will add them to the list below.  Feel free to add suggestions of your own by clicking on "Comments" at the bottom of this page.
