Excellent Google Drive Resources for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | General Education Topics | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

 

"On the occasion of the first back-to-school week, I compiled this list of excellent resources to help teachers make the best of Google Drive in their classrooms. I firmly believe that Google Drive is one of the elemental web tools with huge educational potential that every teacher should be able to tap into. However, the thing with so many of Google's services is that their power and usefulness lies in their hidden features. The resources below cover some of these features."

"Today, more than ever before, technology plays an important role in society. It is changing and will continue to change every aspect of how we live. It is changing the way we communicate, the way we do business, how we learn and teach, and even it’s changing the way our brains work."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 22, 2014 7:05 AM

This infographic provides four key points about e-learning. When you click through to the post you will find detailed descriptions for each of the four ways technology is changing how people learn.

* What does it mean to move from individual to collaborative learning?

* What is this shift from passive to active or brain based learning?
* Technology and differentiated instruction - how does technology assist with this?  (Please note one paragraph is duplicated in this section.)

* Multitasking - Does it work?

The infographic is very simple and it worth reading the text (which is above the inforgraphic when you click through).

Classrooms have always had technology. Technology is about tools. I am not sure that these tools are going away. They may be used differently and, over time. they can hopefully be thoughtfully integrated into classrooms alongside new and yet to be introduced tools. Pedagogy is the key.

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction.

The Internet is all around everyone, any age, anytime that is why it is important to show kids, how to use the internet the right way. There is a lot of dangerous out there that any kids can get caught up on. For school to teach their students how to use the internet is a good idea, because you will show them how to be safe while doing whatever they are doing in the internet. Schools can also teach those ways to search up documents and how to use the internet to be useful for school. They will eventually know 
how to research, if the teachers show kids how to use the internet. There is really no age limit to this because now a days parents give their child a tablet so they can play with it. Society could avoid a lot of situations that are going on today, just by teaching the children how to use the internet the right way.

Even the most confident of native speakers can sometimes have doubts about their spelling and grammar. As for learners of English, getting their writing to a really high degree of proficiency can be a real challenge. It’s great to have a friend to turn to in moments of doubt or better still someone who will proof read your work and give you a second opinion, but if you don’t have that luxury then the Grammarly plagiarism checker is probably the next best thing.
