How to use the NEW Google Sites for student portfolios

Recently, Google released a brand new version of Google Sites (see my thoughts on this here). Over the last few months, I have had the opportunity to work with several classrooms on creating digital portfolios using some simple keystrokes and a little bit of Google Apps.

In this video, you will learn how easy it is to use "New" Google Sites as a Student Portfolio development tool.

How are you using Google Sites with your students? Please us some comments and ideas below.

The connections between Computer Use and Learning Outcomes in students

The connections between Computer Use and Learning Outcomes in students | Mark's Pedagogy | Scoop.it
A group of recent studies on technology in education, across a wide range of real-world settings, have come up far short of a ringing endorsement.

The studies include research on K-12 schools and higher ed, both blended learning and online, and show results ranging from mixed to negative. A deeper look into these reports gives a sense that, even as computers become ubiquitous in classrooms, there’s a lot we still don’t know — or at least that we’re not doing to make them effective tools for learning.

First, a quick overview of the studies and their results:

Last fall, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development published its first-ever, and one of the largest-ever, international analyses of student access to computers and how that relates to student learning. (The OECD administers the PISA test, the world-famous international academic ranking.)

For this report, the researchers asked millions of high school students in dozens of countries about their access to computers both in the classroom and at home, and compared their answers to scores on the 2012 PISA. Here’s the money quote:

“Students who use computers very frequently at school do a lot worse in most learning outcomes, even after controlling for social background and student demographics.”

Wants to teach programming with Moodle - Check out this book | Mark's Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Moodle being an online learning platform can be used for teaching different streams and subjects. However, teaching the computer programming will remain an important aspect of online learning.

If you have ever thought of teaching programming in Moodle, then you might have heard about VPL activity plugin which stands for Virtual Programming Lab whose salient features are:

* Enable to edit the programs source code in the browser
* Students can run interactively programs in the browser
* You can run tests to review the programs.
* Allows searching for similarity between files.
*  Allows setting editing restrictions and avoiding external text pasting.

Aldo Von Wangenheim, the Associate Professor at the Federal University of Santa Catarina – UFSC has written a book Titled “Developing Programming Courses With Moodle And VPL“ for people who teach programming based on their experience with Moodle/VPL in Computer Sciences and Engineering courses at UFSC. The book is a step by step guide for novice teachers wanting to start using VPL in their course along with a detailed report, describing experiences that anyone can reproduce, showing all the possibilities that VPL can offer in conjunction with Moodle.

To grab your copy of the book, please check out this link.
