Official Gmail Blog: An inbox that works for you

Official Gmail Blog: An inbox that works for you | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Cross-posted on the Official Google Blog

Today, we’re introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters. 

Email started simply as a way to send digital notes around the office. But fast-forward 30 years and with just the phone in your pocket, you can use email to contact virtually anyone in the world…from your best friend to the owner of that bagel shop you discovered last week. 

With this evolution comes new challenges: we get more email now than ever, important information is buried inside messages, and our most important tasks can slip through the cracks—especially when we’re working on our phones. For many of us, dealing with email has become a daily chore that distracts from what we really need to do—rather than helping us get those things done.

WeVideo

Video Editing using Chromebooks with WE VIDEO

 

While iPads offer better stop-motion apps and PCs/Macs offer free stop-motion software downloads, this tutorial will focus on using a Chromebook and WeVideo to create stop-motion video (animation). A laptop will work just as well, and you can follow most of the same steps in the tutorial. I have not found a Google App for stop-motion video, so this method is somewhat of a work-around for those who only have access to Chromebooks, or who have laptops that are “locked down” by your school so that software cannot be installed. 

WeVideo is a free online video editor. It requires no downloads or installations. While paid plans are available, the free plan will suffice for creating stop-motion video.

Excellent Google Drive Resources for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

August 18, 2014
On the occasion of the first back-to-school week, I compiled this list of excellent resources to help teachers make the best of Google Drive in their classrooms. I firmly believe that Google Drive is one of the elemental web tools with huge educational potential that every teacher should be able to tap into.

The biggest hurdle in educational technology -- and how to clear it | BHS Ed Tech | Scoop.it

But sometimes, we just have to destroy that wheel and build a new one.

That’s basically what we’re committing to do when we cross from “augmentation” to “modification” in the SAMR model.

 

There's a reason the phrase "don't reinvent the wheel" came into existence. Often, we don't have to start a new idea from scratch when a simple tweak will do the trick. But sometimes, we just have ...
