Free Technology for Teachers: The New Version of Google Forms Finally Arrived on Google Apps for Edu | Technology for Leadership and in Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"This afternoon at Carondelet High School I gave a short presentation about Google Forms. Just as I finished saying that the new version of Google Forms isn't available yet in Google Apps for Education, the new version popped-up in our browsers! Now everyone can take advantage of the new features of Google Forms. One of the best features of the new version is the option to include pictures in your questions. Watch my video below to learn how to add pictures to Google Forms."

What is the Problem With Professional Development?

What is the Problem With Professional Development? | Technology for Leadership and in Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"What is the problem with professional development? The biggest problem is the way we frame it with the language that we use, and the thoughtless interpretation and implementation that we apply. What if we shifted the concept from professional development to professional growth, from what is expected of us by others to a promise we make to ourselves?"
