I agree with you, Elke. PPT is more customizable and powerful.

Google can be accessed by most students both at home and school. These tutorials will assist children with how to use the technology that has been set by the teacher (facilitator) to demonstrate the what of their learning to share with others and to comment on others' learning. This then redefines the activities.

Elena Keating's curator insight, August 13, 2013 5:40 AM

This particular item is a fantastic online resource for students to learn about how Google can be used to help track their research, and develop presentations collaboratively with others within their class to share. By doing so, this is a functional improvement to the technology in that now it has provided an opportunity to augment the production of a presentation on line in time with someone other than the original author. It now fits into Connectivist theory because of the social interaction. It creates an artefact to demonstrate learning and can involve student selected options to display the learning .The teacher is now no longer ‘the sage on the stage” but “the guide on the side”.

Learners are encouraged to create their own pathway in learning and can utilize as little or as much of the technology to help them gather the information, store it and retrieve it as and when needed. They may choose to reject some of the data, or alter the presentation to suit their own understandings and preferred learning style.

I like the way the this tool allows the student to create their own topic. Once again taking on responsibility for their own learning.

David Foster Wallace’s Timeless Graduation Speech on the Meaning of Life, Adapted in a Short Film

David Foster Wallace’s Timeless Graduation Speech on the Meaning of Life, Adapted in a Short Film | Elementary library | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova

 

"On May 21, 2005, David Foster Wallace got up before the graduating class of Kenyon college and delivered one of history’s most memorable commencement addresses. It wasn’t until Wallace’s death in 2008 that the speech took on a life of its own under the title This Is Water, and was even adapted into a short book. Now, the fine folks of The Glossary have remixed an abridged version of Wallace’s original audio with a sequence of aptly chosen images to give one pause:"

 

Wallace: “The real value of a real education … has almost nothing to do with knowledge and everything to do with simple awareness.”
