Eric Curts Resources

Eric Curts Resources | Chromebooks in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Over time I have created quite a few help guides, presentations, and other training resources for Google-related topics and other educational technology topics. Although these resources can be found elsewhere on this site and other locations, I have pulled them all together in one place to make it easy for people to find a needed resource, as well as to be sure you are accessing the most recent version (rather than an older copy made by someone else).

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

I have not encountered Curts and his work previously. He has assembled quite an impressive collection of help guides and training resources. Chances are you will find numerous helpful resources here.

I've come to rely on Eric Curts as my go-to source for all things Google Apps. This all-in-one link is a great resource!

6 Types of Blended Learning

6 Types of Blended Learning | Chromebooks in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity.

That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning.
