10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs - Edudemic | Tannery | Scoop.it
Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators.

Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, March 3, 2014 12:44 AM

"This generation’s digital tendencies means that marketers and brands need to step up their games in order to keep up and engage with them.


Millennials / Generation Y are 77 million strong in the U.S.—on par with Baby Boomers! —and make up 24 percent of the country’s population. And while many are still climbing the income ladder, this group’s size and age range highlights its long-term purchase power.

They are the first to come of age with cable TV, the Internet and cell phones, so technology is essentially baked into every Millennial’s DNA. In fact, when asked what makes their generation unique, Millennials ranked “Technology Use” first (24%), followed by “Music/Pop Culture” (11%) and “Liberal/Tolerant” (7%). In contrast, Boomers ranked “Work Ethic” as the most defining characteristic of their generation.

Given their fluency and comfort with technology, Millennials have more of a positive view of how technology is affecting their lives than any other generation. More than 74 percent feel that new technology makes their lives easier, and 54 percent feel new technology helps them be closer to their friends and family."


It's important to recognize the trends if your business expects to engage with them.

The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius

The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius | Tannery | Scoop.it
It’s one of the most talked-about trends in education right now. Right behind the iPad and Common Core. Flipping your classroom is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. That’s great, because it offers a lot of advantages for your classroom regardless of your students’ age or what subject matter you’re presenting in your classroom. If you’re new to the concept, flipping your classroom can feel a little bit overwhelming: How much should I switch around? What is best for the classroom vs at home? Why am I doing this again anyway?
