I have to admit, this may not be the most educational of resources, but it sure is fun! Emoji Scavenger Hunt challenges players by showing them an emoji and them having them try to find the real life version of it. As long as the player keeps finding the emoji the game continues on. Once the player is unable to find a certain emoji, the game is over. At that point the website shows pictures of all the items they found, which in itself can be pretty humorous!
The Emoji Scavenger Hunt works on iOS (using Safari), Android (using Chrome), Chromebooks, MacOS, & Windows. Using a smart phone or tablet would be easiest, but I did find I could use a Chromebook to complete most of the challenges.
The Emoji Scavenger Hunt could make a great rainy day activity, team building activity, or even an ice-breaker.
A couple weeks ago we lost the 'View Image' button while using Google Images due to pressure from photographers & stock photo companies (source). Now you can bring back that button by using certain Chrome Extensions like View Image. Watch the tutorial below to see this extension in action (View Image YouTube Tutorial)!
Recently Google has made some really cool updates to the Google Arts & Culture app for both iOS and Android. One of the most popular updates is the 'Is my portrait in a museum feature?' This little addition is something that can be used for a Friday Fun Day Activity, a indoor recess activity, or a way to get students to explore famous artwork from around the work. Watch the video below to see exactly how to use the Google Arts & Culture app.
Many people rely on Google for many things throughout the day. We use GMail, Google Drive, YouTube, Chromebooks, and many other items that access our Google Accounts without ever really thinking about it. Sometimes though, it may be a good idea to take a break and find out who and what is exactly accessing our Google Accounts. Watch the video above to see how easy it can be to see what is happening with your account and control what can access it.
