An excellent online course for educators who have beginning or intermediate level skills in using Google apps for education. Self-paced and very well organized. -JL


"The goal of this pilot course is to help educators use Google technology to enhance the efficiency, innovation and effectiveness of their instruction. We have divided the course into three units, each focusing on a set of applications.

  • Research and communicate: search for online resources and distribute information to school communities.
  • Create and share: make online documents and foster collaboration using word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, and survey tools.
  • Enhance classroom experiences: use online tools to enhance communication and visual lessons"

Google Drive in Class:  38 Ideas by Sean Junkins | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

August 11, 2014
This is the third post in a series of posts aimed at helping teachers and educators make the best out of Google Drive in classrooms. This series comes in a time when teachers are getting ready to start a new school year and hopefully will provide them with the necessary know-how to help them better integrate Google Drive in their teaching pedagogy. The two previous posts featured in this series were entitled consecutively "New Google Drive Cheat Sheet" and "Teachers Visual Guide to Google Drive Sharing". Today's post covers some interesting ideas and tips on how to go about using Google Drive in your classroom. This work is created by Sean Junkins from SeansDesk.

Jim Lerman's insight:

David Pogue is my personal expert guide. If he deems something either good or bad, I believe him. This review of the Nexus 7 is quite lauditory -- therefore this must be a very good device.

It’s about time you give some love to Google+, a social media platform set to attract more people not only because of its new dressed up interface, but also by the recent features added.

 

Google+ is obviously betting big on photos as it launches its ability to “auto awesome” images uploaded to it. Its mobile app came through with its refreshing updates as well. All in all, it has been a very active month for Google+ and the new wave of features is projected to increase its social networking share.

Now here’s an infographic ready to turn anyone who’s willing to make the jump an instant Google+ savvy user.

wwwatanabe: Using Google in Interesting Ways--Learned at ISTE13 | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

One goal at ISTE13 was to learn more about the hidden world of Google -- the scripts, extensions, and apps. I honestly wasn't aware of them until I read Linda Yollis' post after she went to the Google Teacher Academy... which led me to a post by Amy Mayer atfriEDTechnology, with her video explanation/tutorial:

After watching the above video, I decided I needed to learn more about what Google offers. At ISTE13, I attended several sessions which added to this quest, including Cool Google Tools for the BYOD Classroom by Tammy Worcester, and Real World Math Lessons with Google Earth by Thomas Petra.

Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

This is How To Use Google Hangout in Your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"If you are planning to use Google Hangout with your students then here is a very good video clip to help you learn more about the benefits of using this platform in your teaching. Though relatively new, Google Hangouts has been increasingly gaining in popularity particularly among educators and social media users.


"Google Hangout  has several distinctive features that sets it apart from the crowd. First, it is integrated with other Google services like Youtube, Gmail, and Calendar and if you have a Google account then you automatically have a Google Plus account. Google Hangouts can also be recorded or streamlined live on YouTube using a generated link. The image and audio quality of hangouts are, I believe, better than the ones in Skype. Google Hangouts also supports a wide variety of third party apps that can be used to perform different tasks like adding emoticons, doodles, chat and many more."
