MFaculty's curator insight, July 11, 2015 9:03 AM

GHO4EDU is a collection of GHO that anyone can replicate. The idea is to demonstrate what others have already successfully done, then incorporate the best parts into your own GHO.

 

Of particular interest to faculty is the professional development GHO, where you can envision taking HR mandatory training up a notch! Further, connecting peer to peer across the spectrum of your specific discipline is a great way to initiate and then foster collaboration and professional networking.

 

Well worth the read!

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!

App Smashing: Combining Google Drive, iTunes U, And Apps In The Classroom - Edudemic

App Smashing: Combining Google Drive, iTunes U, And Apps In The Classroom - Edudemic | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

Many schools that have adopted one-one tablet technology struggle with the pre-requisite skills associated with moving files from app to app. This process is now called App Smashing, and when you learn how to use it to your advantage, it really does make things nice and simple.

Workflow is king and the easier it is to distribute content, create solutions, and then store that information for feedback, the more success you will have in the digital classroom.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, May 13, 2014 11:01 AM

The phrase that jumped out at me is "Workflow is king..." . The classroom is all about flow.  


The use of tablets can be daunting when it comes to getting your documents to go where you want them to go. So, flow seems a good topic to investigate.
