Sharing a Folder in Google Drive | Teacher Tech | Diigo

Kathleen Cercone's insight:

One might argue you do not need folders if you use Google Drive. The search box at the top of drive searches not only the document title but also the body of the document (and does an OCR scan to search the images also!).

If you are sharing a collection of documents with others though, folders are the way to go.

LucyHarper.Com's curator insight, January 27, 4:08 AM

I love that the world is waking up to the fact that children do not always need to be educated in a school. In fact many children HATE school for a whole host of very good reasons that I will discuss in a dedicated article and will never reach their full potential if forced to stay.


Home education has always existed but is experiencing exponential growth with much success. Students from home ed families are now actively sought by leading Universities and Colleges. Much of this can be attributed to parental and child involvement in online learning,

online curriculums and the fact that parents can now run business easily from home and around their childrens needs and well being.


The education most schools deliver today is petrifyingly outdated. My son was being taught the same topics and in the same way as I was 30 years ago! I read Robert T. Kiyosaki's best selling book 'Rich Dad Poor Dad ' yesterday. I didn't think I needed my eyes opening  any wider to the pitfalls of traditional education models but it reaffirmed much of what I believe to be true regarding education.


The myths of yesteryear regarding home educated children have been blown apart. Every home educated child I have met is emotionally and spiritually nourished, nurtured, socialised, educated  and HAPPY! They learn young that following in the herd is NOT the only option and to be true to themselves. 


Educational options should always be tailored if possible to a child's needs. If school is not the best option for them then home educating is a phenomenally popular, exciting and successful second option.
