Excellent Google Drive Resources for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Excellent Google Drive Resources for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"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. However, the thing with so many of Google's services is that their power and usefulness lies in their hidden features. The resources below cover some of these features."

#TeachDoNow MOOC Webinars | Educator Innovator

#TeachDoNow MOOC Webinars | Educator Innovator | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

In the summer of 2014, The National Writing Project and KQED produced a MOOC called ThinkDoNow, with support from the MacArthur Foundation. 

 

The six webinars that formed the basis of the MOOC are archived on the site of the Educator Innovator here. You will see them identified as Episodes #1-#6. 

 

Below, please find a brief description of the MOOC and its topics:

 

"#TeachDoNow is a collaborative learning experience in partnership with the National Writing Project open to anyone interested in learning how to use Twitter and other media sharing applications to promote social and civic discourse with students around science, news and the arts. It will take place online this summer from July 7 – August 17.

 

"Weekly activities will center around KQED’s Do Now, a weekly activity for students to engage and respond to current issues using social media tools. We will engage in weekly discussions that encourage us to go deep into current issues surrounding education, learn new digital tools we can employ with our students, share and discuss our results, and explore the ways to effectively promote digital conversations with our students."

 

All of the materials for the #TeachDoNow MOOC may be accessed here.

"At the heart of the MakerParty campaign, Webmaker tools/resources, and Hive Learning Network is the Web Literacy Map, which outlines what we at the Mozilla Foundation think are the important skills and competencies needed to be literate on the web. Each web literacy competency has a dedicated page that features the best resources on the web to help you “Discover, Make, and Teach” those skills.

 

"Hive Learning Network, a project of Mozilla, is comprised of organizations (libraries, museums, schools and non-profit start-ups) and individuals (educators, designers, community catalysts and makers). Together, they create opportunities for youth to gain digital and analog skills to learn within and beyond the confines of traditional classroom experiences, design innovative practices and tools that provide opportunities for greater impact, and contribute to their own professional development within an active community of practice."
