Suggested by Steve. Tried it out in class today in a paired writing activity (students had to improve text extracts for conciseness and writing style). Feels very dynamic and interactive, as everyone can see real-time what everyone else is doing. Great for giving immediate feedback to students, particularly in space-challenged classrooms. Nice one, Steve - thanks :)

Search Education – Google Information Literacy lessons

Search Education – Google Information Literacy lessons | EdTech & Teaching Inspirations | Scoop.it

Web search can be a remarkable tool for students, and a bit of instruction in how to search for academic sources will help your students become critical thinkers and independent learners.

With the materials on this site, you can help your students become skilled searchers- whether they're just starting out with search, or ready for more advanced training.

The guy who made this, David McCandless, has a great TED talk too. That is useful for helping students understand the importance of visual aids in presentations.

An interesting and what looks like a very useful tool to allow a teacher to take a quick photo of student work and project it- the tools do far more than just sync a photo (as would be done in a tool like Evernote.)
