Arlis Groves's insight:

Why choose Google Drive's Presentation app over Power Point?  No reason, unless you are collaborating on a presentation.  Since more students are working on projects electronically and from different locations, this could be a great tool.

The National Archives offer a very interesting tool for students who study American history. They can create a poster or a movie based on thousands of files that can be found in the Digital Vaults. The final product can be shared digitally or printed.

Great for history projects or presentations.

This is a game changer. As we look into all we will want to do with a device for our 1:1 initiative, being able to screencast was a priority. Student being able to demonstrate mastery by teaching others a specific skill online is essential to our technology platform. This helps tip the scale a bit toward the ChromeBook side.

Title: 6 ways to be a better global citizen

Author: Matt Hershberger

Date: January 1, 2014

 

Main idea: It's about six ways to become a better global citizen when you're visiting another country, state, or city.

 

Summarize the article:

1. You should travel sustainably by traveling by bike, walking, kayaking, or sailing.

2. Learn about the items you buy by checking out the company and if it was ethically made.

3. Read or listen to things that are happening around the world by watching TV, going on the internet, and listening to podcasts.


Opinion/POV: Yes, there's an opinion/POV because the author is giving everybody his tips on how to be a better global citizen. His tips are different from the rest of the world's.


Question: I don't have a question for the article.


Is this article important to science? Why?

I think it is important to science because if you learn about the other countries and the events that take place, you could be informed about new discoveries, research, etc.
