Although we believe that students need to develop the skills necessary to prepare a thoughtful, well-written, inquiry-driven research paper, our students have many other engaging product options. They can acquire subject knowledge and develop transferable information literacy and technology skills through a variety of creative activities. The following is a list of some alternative assessments for your class. For any research product or response to literature, consider how we might offer video, digital storytelling and publishing, art, drama, or presentation as an option for students to creatively communicate/share/publish/broadcast the knowledge they have gained.

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore | Technology and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

"Did you ever click the bright red "New" button inside your Google Drive?

 

"Google Drawings isn't at the forefront of tools. The limelight is reserved for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. But let's do a reawakening of sorts and click on More to go to the "neglected" siblings. We have seen the usefulness of Google Forms. It's time to appreciate the versatility of Google Drawings.

 

"Google Drawings is the freshest among all Google Drive tools. It is not a full-blownimage editor like MS Paint. But the graphic editor is more powerful for one simple fact – it is a real-time collaborative application."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

EXCELLENT suggestions and tips for how to use Google Drawings. Well worth the time to investigate.
