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 And Why Teachers Should Start Blogging| The Committed Sardine

How And Why Teachers Should Start Blogging| The Committed Sardine | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Blogging can be a tricky minefield for teachers to navigate.

However, it’s also an outlet for teachers to build awareness about issues, share information and best practices with one another and bring about systemic change in education, panelists said during a session at the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Conference.

“It’s for us to have that information and to be bolstered and to push back,” said teacher David B. Cohen of InterACT.

The panelists, all bloggers, recognized that teachers walk a delicate line: How do you blog about your classroom, school or district without repercussion?

The 21st Century Principal: 6 Key Personal Learning Network Literacies Every Educator Needs

The 21st Century Principal: 6 Key Personal Learning Network Literacies Every Educator Needs | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

“We now live in a world where even twelve-year olds can create their own global classrooms around the things about which they are are most passionate,” writes Will Richardson in an essay entitled “Navigating Social Networks as Learning Tools.” Richardson adds this about our students, “Most of them have no adults, neither teachers nor parents, in their lives, who can help them see and employ the learning potential at hand.” With this lack of adult involvement, there is no wonder why our kids get into trouble online with cyberbullying and other forms of web mischief. Our children need to have adults in their lives that know and understand the art of developing personal learning networks and connecting with others. In other words, they need adults who are “network literate.”

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?
