Digital Bytes March 16, 2015

This week's Digital Bytes is loaded up with Google tools.

Within every YouTube account is Creator Studio which allows you to listen to and download free music that you can use for a variety of purposes. Have a look at Google Keep for note taking and keeping yourself or a group of students organised. Finally, if you type the word 'Timer' into a Google search box, you will get a timer which you can use to set time for a task.
