Tech-savvy college students hungry for more - Research Information | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"Technology is being described as the new education benchmark after research revealed that more than half of further education students said tech facilities played a part in their choice of college.

 

Conducted by Jisc, the UK’s digital champion for education, research and skills, the research suggests that students are embracing technology like never before and want to see their classroom become a digital haven."

Of those who took part in the survey, 75 per cent of FE learners indicated that they would be happy for some of their lessons to be delivered by a robot,

Are we too dependent on Technology in the Classroom? | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"Being able to focus on a page of text and assimilate the key information from it, without distraction, is a massively important skill and (unlike many technology skills) is one that you can only really gain in a classroom environment. The worry is that with a focus on technology these key and traditional skills will be left behind."

Animaps extends the My Maps feature of Google Maps by letting users create...
   - maps with markers that move,
   - images and text that pop up on cue, and
   - lines and shapes that change over time.
When users share their Animap with peers, and/or others, it appears like a video - they will be able to...
   - play,
   - pause,
   - slow and speed up the action!

Find Public Google Docs

Google Docs and Google Drive don't offer the option to find public files, but you can do that using Google search. Now that the Google Docs robots.txt file allows search engines to index most of the public files, you should be able to find them, assuming that there are some links that point to them.

 

Search engines only index the files that are "public on the Web". By default, files are private, but you can change the visibility from the "Share" box.

 

Here are some useful queries that let you find public Google Drive/Docs files (you can append some keywords to the queries):
