10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs | Edudemic | The OWL Teacher Center SCOOP.IT! | Scoop.it

Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators. Here are ten tricks that can make your life easier with Google Docs:

Mark Fuson's curator insight, July 19, 2014 10:03 AM

I must admit, I've got to get better at some of these. One of the biggest issues with learning something is practice and practice takes time and the willingness to fail. Unfortunately, teachers often are so rushed by their schedules that they can't afford to struggle with something in order to learn it because they have 165 students, 3 different preps, papers to grade, a family life, and curriculum to create. Unless we change these factors, how can a teacher learn new skills in the classroom and why would they try to if experiencing a little failure could negatively impact evaluation?

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: 10 Sites for Differentiated Instruction | The OWL Teacher Center SCOOP.IT! | Scoop.it

Quoted from post:
"Differentiated instruction and assessment (also known as differentiated learning or, in education, simply, differentiation) is a framework or philosophy for effective teaching that involves providing students with different avenues to acquiring content; to processing, constructing, or making sense of ideas; and to developing teaching materials and assessment measures so that all students within a classroom can learn effectively, regardless of differences in ability."
