Richard L. Edwards's curator insight, May 11, 2013 11:01 AM

I'm a fan of Google Docs. I rely on these tools all the time, and like many great pieces of software, it has many more capabilities and tools than most people know about. This blog post is a good overview of some of the key functions that would be useful to almost any educator trying to do a collaborative project with students - I see Google Docs as a great tool for collaborative and constructivist pedagogies.

BYOT: The Hidden Messages

"I have been very fortunate to see Bring Your Own Technology — BYOT — in action in schools in various countries, with learners of various economic backgrounds. While teaching in the U.S., Germany, Greece, Slovenia and Croatia, I used BYOT to teach my learners with technology when little to no technology was available to us. I have integrated BYOT with learners from the ages of 4 to 80 who came from various economic situations. BYOT integration worked effectively with all these groups."
