RECOMMENDED: One amazing site for CLIPART for all classes, subjects and levels (Nursery; Primary ; Post Primary) is Phillip Martin Clipart. I love the visual aspect of learning and I have found these amazing. They can all be saved and they are all transparent so they can sit on top of existing graphics. There are also lots of ideas and templates on his website. What is most amazing is that he has allowed these to be used for free for educational (non commercial) purposes. I have tried to show some of the range of subjects covered in this graphic. With the quality and range on his site I think the fact that he allows it to be used free for education is so commendable. www.phillipmartin.info/clipart/

You can create Collaborative Google Classrooms between like minded teachers; within departments; for whole school development and between schools! The more you share the less work we all have and the more effective ideas are created. I have Google Classrooms set up to Collaborate on all these levels.

This may sound like a dangerous surgical procedure :-) However, it is one of the best tools you can use as a teacher or student. Cut and paste images effortlessly! Have you ever went to Google images and tried to download a photo but it won't upload or won't transfer - this little tool takes the effort out of all that - just drag your mouse over the area you want to copy and you copy and paste straight into your presentations.
This is a website I LOVE! It is also a website my students love. I use it for presentations, websites and YouTube videos and it never fails. It also allows the students to get very creative and to really think about their presentational styles. This transforms your text in seconds and is so adaptable. There are also thousands of variations www.cooltext.com .

Are they useful? Well every May/June this is what I see the pupils stream down to exams carrying.
Ideal for lockdown learners!! Really popular; Interactive and with results that are fed right back to you easily!
