Free Technology for Teachers: Activities for Teaching Students How to Research With Google Books | Transformational Teaching, Thinking, and Technology | Scoop.it
Chris Carter's insight:

Google Books can be a good research tool for students if they are aware of it and know how to use it. These are the activities that I often use to teach students and others about the features of Google Books. 

1. Search for a book by using the "researching a topic?" search box.
2. Use the advanced search menu to refine your search to "full view only" books. 
3. Use the advanced search menu to refine a search by date, author, or publisher. 
4. Search within a book for a name or phrase. 
5. Download a free ebook.
6. Share an ebook via the link provided or by embedding it into a blog post.
7. Create a bookshelf in your Google Books account and add some books to it. 
8. Share your bookshelf with someone else.

lose your anxiety about learning—by working with a computer

lose your anxiety about learning—by working with a computer | Transformational Teaching, Thinking, and Technology | Scoop.it

The “disinhibition effect” produced by technology, writes Adam Joinson, a professor at the University of the West of England, emerges whenever an individual has reason to feel anxiety, self-consciousness or worries about being evaluated. And anxiety, self-consciousness and worries about evaluation are just the emotions that, sad but true, many people feel around learning. Research has repeatedly shown that many students experience these uncomfortable emotions in relation to writing, as well as to math, science and foreign languages.

Precisely because learning can be so emotionally fraught, a non-judgmental computer may motivate students to try, to fail and to improve more than almost any human. Just don’t let the robo-reader give out grades.

Chris Carter's insight:

Annie Murphy Paul is one of the most concise, lucid, and well researched ed tech authors I have ever had the pleasure to come across. In this article she clearly articulates the pluses and minuses of robo-grading, opening a path for implementation through the smoke and noise of entrenched opinion.
