Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

Coggles in Google Drive

Coggles in Google Drive | ChromeBooks for Education | Scoop.it

We love Google docs. In fact, the seamless collaboration in text documents and spreadsheets is one of the things that inspired us to build the same sort of collaboration into Coggle, right from the start, and the frustration of working collaboratively on text documents is partly why Coggles have the branching structure they do – which makes it much simpler to collaborate.

Writefull | A new way of writing with confidence

Writefull | A new way of writing with confidence | ChromeBooks for Education | Scoop.it

We all use Google to check if our writing is correct. We enter different phrases until we find the one that gives us most results – and this is the one we use in our own text. A smart approach, but not without its annoyances: revisiting the Google webpage breaks the flow of our writing, and its results often contain grammatical errors.

An interesting twist on varying your writing. But the comment was correct - there is a bit of a disruption to the writing process and they students need to be reminded that google is not without spelling mistakes!

Charlie Dare's curator insight, April 2, 2014 6:56 AM
Writing a story line or script its usefull ~This looks like an interesting software tool which you can download and use to check your writing against the texts included in thousands of Google books. It can even detect context from the text you are writing and compare it to similar contexts. Interesting stuff!
Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, April 24, 2014 8:36 AM

The application helps to check your writing (in English) not only regarding spelling and grammer but adds tools to check examples of the use of a certain phrase, context and synonyms, too.
