These are very cool Google Docs tips / tricks and hacks by DIW for your 21st Century teaching and learning environments.
Jenny's curator insight, September 17, 11:56 AM
Google Docs is one of the great apps I have explored during my learning experience. I remember that when I was at school, most of my teachers suggested us to start using it since it is very easy to use and manage. However, I did not have a computer and I did not like the idea of doing homeworks by the computer. To me, homeworks were better at hand, but through the years, I started becoming aware about the advantages of using this app. 
In my school, there was an attempt to develop and enhance cooperative work since most of the parents were arguing that they did not want their children to do homeworks in others friends` houses, for them, it was better to start using the computer as a way to perform tasks with no moving from their home in their free time. 
I really love this app because it facilitates the development of tasks , optimizes time and enhances the cooperation among partners .
It is significant to recognize that this great app is now taking place in different settings due to the features it provides. It is a powerful tool in academic scenarios because it promotes autonomy, cooperative work and responsibility.
Some years ago, it just provided the feature of sharing documents and editing some aspects of the text, but now that technology has settled into many contexts,google docs provide more features to correct, align and adjust the document.

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team

Five Simple Tips For Building A More Emotionally Intelligent Team | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Getting smart people into your company is hard enough. Turning them all into great collaborators and risk-takers is even harder. Even on the most high-performing teams, coworkers don’t just openly share feedback and challenge each others’ ideas all on their own–managers need to create a culture that encourages this. And that usually requires building your team’s collective emotional intelligence. Here are a few straightforward (and entirely low-tech ways) to get started.

5 robots that are about to revolutionize the workforce — and put jobs at risk

5 robots that are about to revolutionize the workforce — and put jobs at risk | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

According to a study from Oxford University and the Oxford Martin School, 47% of jobs in the United States are "at risk" of becoming "automated in the next 20 years." PwC has similar findings, estimating that 38% of U.S. jobs are at risk of being replaced by robots and artificial intelligence in the next 15 years. And while two-thirds of Americans believe robots will take over most of the workforce in the next 50 years, they're also in denial: 80% say their job will "probably" or "definitely" be around in five decades.

How One Insurance Firm Learned to Create an Innovation Culture

How One Insurance Firm Learned to Create an Innovation Culture | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

More and more companies are realizing they must reinvent their cultures by infusing innovation into their DNA. Unlike startups that get to shape culture from scratch, established companies must transform existing norms, values, and assumptions in ways that inspire everyone to innovate — not just at the top of the organization, but at all levels.

 

One company that’s making headway on that goal is CSAA Insurance Group (CSAA IG), one of the insurance companies affiliated with the 55 million-member American Automobile Association (AAA). With almost 4,000 employees, CSAA IG has embarked on a systemic approach to create a pervasive culture of innovation. The tactics being used by CSAA IG are all ones that leaders in other companies can apply to their own innovation culture change efforts.
