Kaizena · Give Great Feedback · Voice Comments for Google Drive

Ok this is rather cool. Kaizena allows you to record verbal feedback to a Google document. You share your Google Drive with Kaixena and select the file that you wish to add the feedback too. When the page loads you see who you are sharing the file with on the left hand side. Your pointer turns into a highlighter and you highlight the section that you want to feedback on. When this is done you get three options: Add a recording, add a commment or add a http link Click on Add a recording icon and record your comment. Next you select the individuals you wish to share the feedback with and choose if you wish to send them an email or the Doc comments When you go into the document and click on Comments you are asked to visit ANOTHER!!! link to see th work you have done (Not so good as I though it would be embedded in the original document Says it works for offline resources too. Limited in that you cannot seem to select MORE THAN ONE recipient at a time to see the feedback. It might grow on me or iron out some of these issues or maybe I am not using it right?

HI: STEM Industry Day Connects Students to Real-World Careers | Maui Now

HI: STEM Industry Day Connects Students to Real-World Careers | Maui Now | STEM Education in Middle School Science Classroom | Scoop.it

Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students from high schools across Maui County will be given a peek into the real-world technology industry during STEMworks Industry Day, March 12, at the Maui Research & Technology Park.

 

“For a lot of the students, this will be their first time visiting the Tech Park and many are going to be pleasantly surprised at the possibility of working their dream job in their own backyard,” said Isla Young, a program director Maui Economic Development Board’s Women in Technology (WIT) project, in a press announcement today.

 

“Industry Day provides an important link between the classroom and a wide range of STEM career paths.”

 

Local industry representatives will be on-hand to give STEM students a guided tour of their high tech companies and talk about the creative career opportunities available on Maui.

 

Students will be able to see first-hand how the software programs they have been using in their STEMworks labs apply to the “real” world. Programs range from engineering design to computer-aided design (CAD), geographic information systems (GIS) to 3D imaging, and global positioning systems to webpage graphics.

 

“By giving students a glimpse of the inside process, we can help them connect the dots to corresponding careers in the STEM industry,” said Isla Young, a program director Maui Economic Development Board’s Women in Technology (WIT) project, in a press announcement today.
