Sandra Carswell's curator insight, June 10, 2014 10:25 AM

Nice basic guide to Google Drive and the toolbars of Docs, Sheets, Slides. I don't know how old it is. It mentions needing to download documents in order to edit them offline. If you have the Google Drive Chrome Web App installed and have enabled offline use on your personal computer, you can edit your documents offline without downloading, exept for sheets which is view only right now.

7 Features of Google Keep for You To Teach With :: Teacher Tech :: Alice Keeler | Technology Tools and Tips for Education | Scoop.it
Google Keep is an easy way to take quick notes, create to-do lists, or save important information. You can describe Google Keep as “digital post it notes.” Google Keep is great for teachers and students to capture quick thoughts and to collaborate. One trick I use a lot is using the web version with the mobile version at the same time. Taking a picture with my phone in Google Keep quickly gets the image onto my computer.

The Top 17 Free Digital Storytelling Apps for The iPad | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Top 17 Free Digital Storytelling Apps for The iPad | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology Tools and Tips for Education | Scoop.it

The iPad is such a boon in education. It is making a slow but steadfast revolution in the way instruction is  both  delivered and received. Teachers Simple Guide on The Use of iPad in Education clearly manifests this transfrmation and provides tips on how educators can leverage the power of this device in educational settings.

One of the things I like the most about iPad is its ability to support all the major e-reader platforms. Its interactivity and audio capabilities have even added a new dimension to read alouds and bedtime stories, making it an ideal device for digital storytelling. And since Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already featured a List of The Best Digital Storytelling Tools ( web and desktop version ) then we deem it equally important to provide another list of such tools but this time for the iPad.

Below is a list of some of the best free digital storytelling tools available for the iPad.
