What Do Schools Risk By Going ‘Full Google’?

What Do Schools Risk By Going ‘Full Google’? | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Google launches new tools for teachers and expands its brand among students.

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Classroom enables a teacher to create a “class” at the touch of a button. She or he can upload syllabus materials, whether text, audio or video, and send out assignments on the class news feed.

Teachers see instantly who has turned in their homework. They can start a class discussion and provide feedback and grades; students can see what’s due and what’s late. The whole package integrates with the rest of Google’s apps, like Google Docs.


Still, not everyone is ready to embrace Google’s free education applications.

Alfredo Corell's insight:
More Than a Word Processor

Beyond using Google Docs as a word processor, these features allow it to become an editing platform, collaboration tool, research aid, and much more.

5 Reasons Pinterest’s Search Engine Is Better Than Google’s

5 Reasons Pinterest’s Search Engine Is Better Than Google’s | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Pinterest is a lifestyle searching tool for millions of people.

 

People go on there with excited eyes to look for amazing recipes to cook for dinner that weekend, find ways to dress to the tens for a special date, or find creative educational materials to teach children with.

 

Millions of users turn to Pinterest to enhance their lifestyle. And they are doing so by using the search function on Pinterest. Here’s a fun fact.

 

Did you know that Google has a search engine just for recipes? It’s been around for years, but almost nobody I know uses it.

 

Instead, most people I know automatically go to Pinterest if they want to find recipes to try out.

 

That’s not the only reason Pinterest is better than Google.

 

Here are 5 reasons why Pinterest’s search engine is better than Google.

Oppia: Bite-sized learning journeys

Alfredo Corell's insight:

Oppia is a tool for creating interactive online activities that enable students to learn by doing. Its creators believe that this is often a more effective and efficient way of learning than either watching videos or reading texts, since it allows the student to engage more deeply with the activity in a way that videos or books often do not.


Oppia is a versatile tool that enables non-technical users to create interactive online educational activities (called 'explorations') that give immediate and personalized feedback to learners. These explorations are incrementally improvable by the community, and embeddable in any webpage.
