Free Technology for Teachers: Gmail for Beginners - A Video Tutorial

Free Technology for Teachers: Gmail for Beginners - A Video Tutorial | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

My Google Drive and Google Sites guides both mention how to create Google accounts, but it doesn't cover how to use one of the most fundamental parts of Google accounts, Gmail. The video below, which I did not create, does a nice job of showing you the basics of using Gmail. I wish the video was zoomed-in a bit more, but otherwise it's a good primer for the first-time Gmail users.

How Wikis Can Help Schools Organize Their Content

How Wikis Can Help Schools Organize Their Content | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Students and teachers are embracing web 2.0 technologies with fervour but administrators are not, even though these remarkable tools can provide much needed cost-saving capabilities. This phenomenon is understandable,because older office tools, an already overburdened staff, and the reluctance to change the way of doing things all discourage jumping into untested waters. However, it is clear that administrative wikis can provide school administrations with radically improved documentation processes. In fact, they can begin to make schools the very platforms that students and teachers need to succeed in their technical endeavours. Why not reinvent schools as technology centres? After all, they are already theatres, restaurants, sports complexes, and more. The road starts with the administrative wiki."

Educational Technology Guy: Google Spreadsheets adds Discussions for easier collaboration

Educational Technology Guy: Google Spreadsheets adds Discussions for easier collaboration | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Google Spreadsheets, Google's online, collaborative spreadsheet system in Google Drive has just added an awesome feature - discussions. This feature is already in Documents and Presentations.
It allows you, and the other users of a spreadsheet, to add comments, which can be replied to, to any cell on a sheet. You can even +1 someone to add them to the discussion and send them a notification via email. Another cool feature is that they can reply to the comment directly from their inbox.
This is another great feature that makes Drive and Spreadsheets even more useful.

Free Technology for Teachers: Week in Review - Everyone Back to School!

Free Technology for Teachers: Week in Review - Everyone Back to School! | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Judging by the massive spike in traffic to the blog this week, I think it's safe to say that almost everyone is back into their school year routines. Whether it's your first year or thirty-first year in education, I hope your year is off to a great start. Speaking of back to school, this weekend I'm spending some time having a mini-reunion of sorts with friends from my days at the University of Maine at Farmington. I hope that all of you have equally fun plans for the weekend.

The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You | Edudemic

The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You | Edudemic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

One of the most popular posts on Edudemic in 2010 was The 35 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You and I felt it might be time for an update to that list for 2011. In order to put together a list of the best Web 2.0 classroom tools, I polled my Twitter followers, Facebook fans (are they still called fans? Likes?) and ran a contest to try and get as many submissions as possible.

There were more than 900 submissions but many were duplicates. This left me with 100 different Web 2.0 tools that are recommended by your peers. After all, what better way to uncover new products than by the people you are already sharing with?

Six Google Chrome extensions you should think about using

By Nicolas Jimenez

"Google does a great job of making those extensions easy to find and manage. There are also other plug-ins that I use several times a day. Here's a list of what I've found to be the most useful. I'm not going to bother writing my own summaries most of these extensions since their inclusion on the list amounts to my "endorsement" or them anyway."

Education Rethink: 10 Differences Between Teaching and Coaching

Education Rethink: 10 Differences Between Teaching and Coaching | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I believe in the power of the coaching model. This afternoon, I will have an amazing grammar guru in my class modeling a lesson. I will engage in a dialogue with her. With her guidance, I will grow in one of my weakest areas of teaching. So, when I mention these differences, I want to be clear that I don't believe that coaching is better or worse than teaching. However, I do believe that they are very different from one another. Here are a few differences I've experienced:
