Gary Harwell's curator insight, December 29, 2013 11:20 PM

This pretty much seems to be worthy goals for us to strive for.

Gary Harwell's curator insight, December 29, 2013 11:20 PM

Everyone should be working in this direction.

Renee Stewart's curator insight, January 25, 11:03 PM

I think that these are the right answers for the goal of all education, with or without technological integration. We don't teach kids to use a hammer so they can bash things, it is so that they can integrate it as a tool to be used purposefully to achieve a greater goal e.g. the building of a house. In the process they develop hand-eye coordination, muscle control, restraint and safety-awareness. Digital tools - Analog tools, all valuable, all have their place within the context of broader learning. Our goal is to help students learn to match and the best tools for the task and then support them as they acquire both the tool specific skills and the broader educational goal.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:37 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 6:56 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.

"I have been having an incredible year of learning in my half-time role with Parkland School Division, along with speaking and consulting for other schools/districts.  I have learned a lot from both positions and I feel that it is very valuable to be able to look at school cultures within your organization, while also looking at what other schools do from an outsider’s perspective."
