Cell Phone activities:

If you don't have a cell phone, you can set up both of these on a computer right now and maybe use it when you get a cell phone

1. Download google drive and google docs on your phone

2. EvernoteNext in line of cool apps for the classroom is Evernote. This handy app lets you type a text note, or clip a web page. If your phone has a camera you can snap a photo, and now you can also grab a screenshot. Like dropbox it doesn’t matter what device you are on, they all sync together.

3. Dropbox: DropboxOne of my most most used apps is dropbox. Dropbox allows all my computers and my phone to interact together. So the photo I take on my cell phone can be put in my Dropbox app and now it is available on all my devices, love it!

4. Download WeVideo on your cell phone and create a short video and share it with me - add wevideo to your google apps (might have to do this on the computer by clicking create and then connect more apps and search for wevideo. ( believe you have to upload the video to wevideo and then work on it on the computer.
