7 Ways To Use Google Tools To Maximize Learning - Edudemic

7 Ways To Use Google Tools To Maximize Learning - Edudemic | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
There are a boatload of awesome Google tools that we use every day. And they’re free, too, which tends to be a big winner for teachers and students. Free is probably the number one reason for giving Google’s tools a try – you haven’t lost anything but a bit of time if you decide you …

Beth Dichter's insight:

Google provides so many tools it is hard to keep track of all of them. This post provides information on 7 tools that may find a place in your classroom. 
Would you like to provide audio feedback to your students, or have peers provide audio feedback? If you are using Google Drive this is possible.

Do you have a student that needs a clean and clear space to write, with no distractions? If Chrome is available as a browser consider installing the app Write Space, a "minimalist text editor."

If students are working in Google Drive and are researching a paper they may have found the Research Tool that allows you to quickly search the web for specific information, make suggestions and more.

Google Forms continues to add features, including the ability to create surveys. Have your students design a survey and graph their data, or use it the survey tool to do a quick formative assessment as an exit ticket.

Learn more about Moderator, Image Directory, and Google Templates (that's right, Google has templates designed for students and teachers) in the post. Chances are you will find at least one or two tools to use for yourself or with your students (or both)!

Google Kills Tilde Search Operator

Google Kills Tilde Search Operator | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
One of the lesser-known tools used by searchers on Google has been the tilde sign (~) operator. Citing low usage, Google has confirmed it has dropped support for the tilde, which would also include synonyms for a keyword in the search results.
Sharrock's insight:

I've only learned about the tilde in Google search recently. Now, it is gone...for a few months now.

Google rolls out new 'Hummingbird' search algorithm

Google is trying to keep pace with the evolution of Internet usage. As search queries get more complicated, traditional "Boolean" or keyword-based systems begin deteriorating because of the need to match concepts and meanings in addition to words.

3 Secret Ways To Use Hashtags You’ve Never Tried Before

3 Secret Ways To Use Hashtags You’ve Never Tried Before | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Six years after Chris Messina first introduced the hashtag, it’s taken over the Internet and is used in Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Flickr and other places.
Sharrock's insight:

This is a great idea! From the article:  invisible hashtags!

When you are finished composing an email, just hit Enter a couple of times after you sign off. Write down all the hashtags you want, select all the hashtags and change the text colour to white — voila, you’ve got invisible hashtags.

For example: You have to send an email to your boss Mark about “Project X”, which is part of the larger “System A”. The message is that you need him to look through what you’ve done. Here’s how to tag it so that it shows up along with all your emails about the project...In this example, the text colour of #ProjectX and #SystemA has been changed to white. When you need to find the email later, just search for the hashtag in Gmail.

Top Tech Trends & People of 2012 (Focus on New Media Communications)

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

 

P.S. There are some typos and honest mistakes in this textbook, but I am comfortable sharing it as is. I am excited to redesign it for next semester.

Ken

New outliners and authoring tools are machines for new thoughts.

 

from text box "Whyit matters": "A new crop of startups is gearing up to change the way we write, taking on traditional authoring tools such as Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and WordPress. The newcomers don’t just promise to make it easy to create documents or write blog posts—they promise to make you smarter."
