Here is one of my favourite Google search posters that is ideal for classroom use. In this free downloadable poster, students will get to learn about 7 important tips on how to conduct an efficient search query on Google.

Free Technology for Teachers: 10 Good Google Docs, Sheets, and Forms Add-ons for Teachers | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
This afternoon I was asked if I could put together a list of my favorite Google Docs, Sheets, and Forms Add-ons. In the past I had put together lists of Sheets scripts, but most of those lists are outdated as Add-ons have mostly replaced scripts. Here's my updated list of my favorite Google Docs, Sheets and Forms Add-ons.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 18, 3:43 AM

The e-Assessment Toolkit exists to provide clear, current, practical information to e-assessment practitioners, or those thinking of adopting e-assessment. The toolkit offers useful tools and resources, helping users to develop and share their knowledge of e-assessment for effective implementation.


What is e-Assessment?

E-assessment as a single term describes a range of learning and assessment activities that have distinct meanings in their own contexts e.g. electronic marking, online assessment, computer-aided assessment and direct on-screen testing are all referred to as e-assessment.

The toolkit is for those involved in the management and delivery of e-assessment in centres offering accredited vocational qualifications and covers two key aspects of e-assessment: the management and delivery of e-testing and the use of e-portfolios for assessment.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 25, 10:06 PM

Mia MacMeekin recently posted a new infographic that helps students learn how to determine if online resources are reliable. It is split into four sections, and each section has seven questions. The four sections are:

* Who wrote it?

* What is it for?

* Why was it written?

* When was it written?

With the additional questions students should be able to determine if the site is relevant to their research, and use critical thinking skills as they come to their decision.

This is an area where many students struggle, and this visual may help them become more comfortable in learning how to evaluate information.
