Thank you so much Hans! I have been waiting for them to get back to me as well; sorry to hear that they are closing down as I was interested in another feedback site; yes, I use Kahoot and Quizziz and others, but always good to have more to use in class. Thank you again!

The Paperless iPad Classroom with the Google Drive App

The Paperless iPad Classroom with the Google Drive App | Technology Tools for Leo's | Scoop.it

"Have you read The Paperless Classroom with Google Docs by Eric Curts? http://bit.ly/104vztx ; If not, you should. It is a great way for Google schools to harness the power of Google for sharing documents, and establishing a workflow for students to turn in work for teachers to grade and return in a paperless environment. I love it. In fact, I liked it so much that I decided to pay homage to it with a version that is dedicated to doing the very same thing on the iPad using just the Google Drive app.

 

Regular readers will have seen my last post, How to Use Comments on the Google Drive iPad app http://bit.ly/14koJzE . For me, this was a key change to the Google Drive iPad app, and one that had huge implications for the iPad classroom. It inspired me to think about just how much you can do in Google with an iPad and the Drive app, and I soon discovered that you can do a lot more than you might think.

 

So, with the blessing of Eric Curts himself, I sat down and went through all the steps he meticulously outlined for the desktop version of Google Drive, and converted as many as I could to the equivalent actions in the Google Drive iPad app. Then I added some additional steps for other things like taking documents offline, or grading PDFs, images and movies."

This is hilarious! Hit songs such as My Sharona, Norwegian Wood, I Can't Get You Out of My Head, Blister int the Sun etc etc, all with lyrics about famous historical events or characters sung by history teachers. Painfully funny/good!!

 

Maybe we should get our own HSIE faculty at Leo's to have a crack!!!!

Telescopic Text © Joe Davis 2008 | Technology Tools for Leo's | Scoop.it

 

A 3 word sentence evolves in a story. A great tool for showing students at Leo's from Year 7 up, how to add detail and 'flesh out' a piece of creative writing.

Beginning with the economy of words of an author like Hemingway the story evolves from 3 words to 83, with the learner watching with each 'click' as each layer of description is added.
