Thank you Alan & Jennifer for your comments. I have watched the YouTube and think it was a great idea to link to Blloms taxonomy!! I look forward to investigating all this further and sharing it

BB always had the right idea, and now we see how Apps can be applied to the Bloom Taxonomy to support different ways and levels of learning.

How to Use the "About" Section of Google Classroom - Teaching with Technology

How to Use the "About" Section of Google Classroom - Teaching with Technology | IT 4 Learning | Scoop.it
Google Classroom is just awesome! Managing the flow of Docs and assignments has never been easier, thanks to this fabulous tool.

A vastly underused feature of Google Classroom, however, is the About section. When I first noticed the About section, my first thoughts were, “what is this?” and “what am I supposed to put here?” as well as “can my students see this?”

Teaching Students Collaboration Skills Using Google Photos

When students collaborate together creating a group project planning is a key to success. Generally there are rubrics or step by step directions to follow for supporting students with gathering information. It is not unusual for one student to pick out the image and persuades the others to use it with no real discussion. If it is a TRUE collaborative project built to have students communicate with each other then shouldn’t they discuss the images too?

Why not have the students create a GooglePhotos Album to use as a repository for images to be used in the group project? Each student would be responsible to submit one picture to the GooglePhotos Album, and write a short sentence about the picture.

Teaching, Tech and Twitter: HyperDocs! Need I say more????

Teaching, Tech and Twitter: HyperDocs! Need I say more???? | IT 4 Learning | Scoop.it
Isn't a hyperdoc just a doc with hyperlinks???

NOPE! It is SO much more! The beauty of HyperDocs is that the creation of the doc itself requires the teacher to take into consideration the needs of the students, how they will engage in the content, what ways they can reflect on their own learning, and how they can show what they know. It is also ALL about packaging. HyperDocs LOOK engaging because they are. Kids enjoy doing them and while they are learning, collaborating, creating and reflecting in their doc the teacher is given the gift of time to connect with students and engage in quality conversations with them about their learning.

Free Hosting for Educators, Introducing MoodleCloud

Free Hosting for Educators, Introducing MoodleCloud | IT 4 Learning | Scoop.it

In a surprising announcement this morning at the Australia Moot, founder Martin Dougiamas announced the launch of MoodleCloud, free Moodle classroom hosting for educators worldwide.

The service will provide educators around the globe the ability to sign up, create courses, and host their classes online for free all on a current Moodle version without needing their local IT staff or administrators to setup a site or fees for hosting.

The official free course hosting launch is a welcome service for Moodlers who for years have used a slew of “freemium” Moodle hosting sites which have suddenly pivoted, languished versions, or slowly become defunct due to latency or lack of a sustainable business model (see a list here).

While the site is not designed for running a MOOC or larger course (users are limited at 50) it does come with free access to BigBlueButton web conferencing for up to 6 users at a time, potentially a great resource for online tutoring sessions and live instruction.

The service will be supported through “minimal advertising”.

According to the official press release [read the full document here - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6dptaPpGZSHWHd2cGFMMUVZV0E/view?usp=sharing],

Add the Same File to Multiple Folders in Google Drive without Copying

Add the Same File to Multiple Folders in Google Drive without Copying | IT 4 Learning | Scoop.it

gMail works around tags (or labels) and any email message can belong to one or more tags. Google Drive however uses folders instead of tags and thus any file, or folder, can have exactly one parent folder. For instance, if you have uploaded a presentation file in FolderA, it can’t simultaneously exist in FolderB. Right?

Not really. You will be pleasantly surprised to know, at least I was, that Google Drive does allow you to place any file inside one or more folders without you having to create multiple copies of that file. This makes organization easier and if you edit this file inside one folder, all the other instances are updated as well since they are essentially pointing to the same file.

Control Alt Achieve: 5 Fantastic Word Cloud Tools for Chromebooks | IT 4 Learning | Scoop.it

Word Clouds are a favorite tech tool for classrooms.

You input are large passage of text, and then a shape is created from the words, with the more frequent words displayed in a bigger font size, and the less frequent words shown smaller.

This can be a great tool for many classroom activities...

For years sites such as Wordle and Tagxedo have provided teachers and students with easy to use word cloud generators. Unfortunately those sites use Java and Silverlight which do not run on Chromebooks. As more and more schools deploy Chromebooks, schools have been scrambling to find new options for generating word clouds.

Thankfully there are now several excellent options that use newer technology and will run properly on a Chromebook. See below for five examples of Chromebook-friendly word cloud tools that you and your students can use.
