Best results indicate using  consistent, familiar platforms such as Connected Classrooms which allows our students to become proficient in using and connecting through smart tools such as Connected Classrooms.  Teching through questioning allows students to discover their objective analysis of a communicator's  intent across cultures through body language, intonation, words, environment and situations where patterns occur.  With quantitave and qualitative data students will formulate appropriate essential questions as they become familiar with a broad range of peoples on a common platform.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:37 AM

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.
