Apple TV Settings for the Classroom

Apple TV Settings for the Classroom
While Apple TV’s default screen saver photographs are beautiful, you can use your own images for the screen saver. It’s like using the display connected to your Apple TV as a digital bulletin board! I suggest adding an iCloud Photos album on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad titled Apple TV. After adding images to this album, go into Apple TV’s Settings app and choose Screen Saver. Choose iCloud Photos and your album that you titled Apple TV. Note that the option to to use iCloud Photos as the screen saver is not displayed if you have hidden iCloud Photos from the main menu. It might be tricky using iCloud Photos if your iCloud account is different from the one used for the Apple TV. After you have that iCloud Photos or Flickr account all set up in as the screen saver, you don’t have to do anything on Apple TV when you want to make changes. Also in the Screen Saver settings: you can set how long each image is displayed and how long it takes before the screen saver activates.

This means that instead of having to search within EDpuzzle for videos you can simply browse YouTube like you normally do then just click the EDpuzzle extension to save the video.

Minecraft Education Edition: why it's important for every fan of the game At the densely crowded Bett show, a mammoth education technology conference taking up most of London’s ExCel venue, a vast audience has gathered to watch one particular demonstration. It is Microsoft’s newly announced Minecraft: Education Edition, a special version of the hugely successful building sim, specifically customised for the classroom environment. As the company representative highlights the main features, spectators photograph every single powerpoint slide. Behind the stage there’s a demo area with dozens of laptops running an early version of the new edition – all lined up on tables designed to resemble the game’s simple wooden blocks. There is a constant throng of excitable children, all desperate to play. Minecraft is a big attraction and Microsoft knows it.
