Lou Salza's curator insight, January 19, 2013 6:13 PM

"With recent upgrades to the Google Drive app on the iPad, it is now a viable solution for student portfolios that can be created in their entirety on iPad. Everything that is created by a student can be uploaded directly to their Google Drive account and into a “Portfolio” folder that can then be shared with any one of their teachers.

The Google Drive app now allows for thecreation of Documents, Spreadsheets, and Folders. Plus, the ability to upload photos and videos from the camera roll. WIth many PDF annotation apps such as Notability and Paperport Notes now allowing direct upload to Google Drive, the process of curating student work becomes even easier.

The video tutorial below explains the process of creating, uploading and sharing within the Google Drive app on an iPad...."

No mere pamhplet either, this is a proper book!

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, January 9, 2013 7:23 AM

"The daydream begins. It’s a familiar scene, one we have likely both experienced as students and struggled against in our students as teachers. But daydreaming is not what it might seem. Recent research in both psychology and neuroscience makes clear that daydreaming is an essential part of mental processing, reasoning and, yes, even learning."

 This is an amazing tool for both students and teachers. You can use it as a dictionary, but it does a lot more. The best feature is that you can 'stash' words, ie. save them for future reference and study. Once you have 'stashed' 10 words you can enable the 'study mode', which will test you on those words until you become familiar with them.

The first live workout was awesome. It's not too late to join. In fact, it's the right time. You can view this and the next 7 sessions and the recordings for $15. That's a bargain because you will get an MP3, work sheets to practice and so much more.

The point of the English workout is for you to keep viewing the recordings after the live sessions over and over again in your car, as you jog, and so on on your cell phone, mp3, iPad, android and so on. You do not need to be there for the live event.

So enroll in the 8 week workout program, today: http://www.wiziq.com/course/10282-the-english-workout-with-fluency-mc-8-classes

streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:10 AM
Some day I would love to hear some stories of your past life as a journalist and how you moved from structure to the flow of story. What I like the most of a good news article, (written by a decent journallist), is the lead. In the B2B world, "having a point" is missed far too often and replaced with fluff words, such as state of the art. In this way, even though both news and B2B content march to a different drummer, as Simon Sinek points out, start with why, the rest will follow. Yet I also firmly belief a good story needs to follow the right flow to connect with and move the listener. On re-invent, no fear, we violently agree, it is a metaphor us engineers use all the time. To re-invent implies we are using things of the past, such as a wheel...
streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:12 AM
Small clarification, on start with why, I do not mean the story starts this way. As Simon points out, the why is in all things one does and helps us build what it is we are trying to achieve.
Karen Dietz's comment, January 17, 2013 4:39 PM
Hi John/Ken -- I love these comments! I was able to move from structure to story flow by taking oral storytelling classes with some of the top folks in the story performance arena. I could myself very lucky to have had those experiences and encourage everyone I can to take some oral storytelling classes. And creating writing classes along the way sure helped too! As you say, lead-ins are so important and so many folks I coach/train struggle with how to open a story. I think my training as a journalist definitely helped there. I totally agree with your points about fluff and starting out with why, and flow. LOL on the re-invent! Great minds think alike :)
