Elena Keating's curator insight, August 12, 2013 9:28 PM

Google can be accessed by most students both at home and school. These tutorials will assist children with how to use the technology that has been set by the teacher (facilitator) to demonstrate the what of their learning to share with others and to comment on others' learning. This then redefines the activities.

Elena Keating's curator insight, August 13, 2013 5:40 AM

This particular item is a fantastic online resource for students to learn about how Google can be used to help track their research, and develop presentations collaboratively with others within their class to share. By doing so, this is a functional improvement to the technology in that now it has provided an opportunity to augment the production of a presentation on line in time with someone other than the original author. It now fits into Connectivist theory because of the social interaction. It creates an artefact to demonstrate learning and can involve student selected options to display the learning .The teacher is now no longer ‘the sage on the stage” but “the guide on the side”.

Learners are encouraged to create their own pathway in learning and can utilize as little or as much of the technology to help them gather the information, store it and retrieve it as and when needed. They may choose to reject some of the data, or alter the presentation to suit their own understandings and preferred learning style.

I like the way the this tool allows the student to create their own topic. Once again taking on responsibility for their own learning.
