Charles Nyakito's curator insight, December 3, 2014 4:16 AM

The idea of a flipped classroom is a wonderful idea. Teachers waste a lot of time explaining new concepts to learners which time could have been saved if the teacher had given the learners the topics in advance to research using their mobile digital devices.and simply use class time to discuss. I wish to recommend for every teacher who has not tried these ideas to do so and enjoy the magic of flipping.

Some are simply a reminder but worth repeating. It talks about using colour codes for folders (more choices would be good!), adding numbers to file names to help with sorting, using the star option for special files and, obscurely, using Google forms for to-do lists!

Google Classroom – Should You Use It?

Google Classroom – Should You Use It? | Bethel Tech Champions | Scoop.it

"As we all know, Google is a force in many different facets of our daily lives. It only makes sense that they also have their involvement within education.

 

From a formal standpoint, Google scrapped their course builder program in favor of partnering with edX, but they still have other tools that are being leveraged across classrooms big and small. Most notably, the Google Classroom program."

Looks like great a great classroom tool...and great for TPEP.

 

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, August 26, 2014 7:33 PM

The free version only allows public mindmaps/brainstorms, so if you are in a school setting and don't want student work to be shared, this might not be the right tool. The professional version that allows you to make the maps private is a steep $49 a month. 

Mark Sheppard's curator insight, September 3, 2014 12:28 PM

may serve as a useful too when teams/experts are distributed.  Also beats using stickies to map out ideas.
