Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 12:37 AM

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Top 11 Educational Video Websites for Teachers | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The use of multimedia in the classroom is a great way of getting students engaged. One of the biggest challenges we all face today is how to hold students attention for a longer time. It seems like multitasking has taken every bit of attention from our students. No wonder,  the visual stimulus they are exposed to is huge : Tv, video gaming, social networking, texting, emailing,are but the emerging tip of the iceber and unless we seriously address this phenomenon  it will definitely grow out of control.

Hi Thomas, you are right, but there are several good alternatives at more affordable prices. I am preparing a public list so that you can take direct advantage of it.
Thomas N. Burg's comment, September 9, 2012 11:08 AM
Hi Robin, I did some research since we are using it for a biz case. Knoodle might be interesting I think, and 9slides if they improve the editor … looking forward to your list :-)
Alex Haller's comment, January 10, 2013 4:28 AM
The problem with Knoodle is the poor navigation possibility. Not comparable with the SlidePresenter solution. But it really depends on what your goals are. SlidePresenter is an appropriate tool for corporations rather than for private use.
