Thanks for attending my session (or one with a similar title). I hope you feel your time was well spent. On this page you’ll find the notes and references from the session, along with links to other resources you can use to continue your learning about smartphone photography.
Since most smartphones have a very capable camera, people are taking lots of pictures these days. But the tools for organizing, editing, and sharing them beyond social media are pretty limited, especially if you want to use the images for instruction. And don’t want to pay a lot for them.

Google’s Arts & Culture site is a large and growing fast collection of high resolution photographs of artifacts on display at more than 1200 of the world’s great museums and cultural archives.
With Expeditions, Google is using it’s Street View technology to create virtual field trips, college campus visits, and career experiences for your students. Think of it as an experiment, and an inexpensive introduction to virtual reality.
