Free Technology for Teachers: How to Use Google Slides to Organize Research

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Use Google Slides to Organize Research | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

Like many of you, when I was in middle school and high school we were taught to create index cards to organize our research. After creating the cards we sorted them into an order to support writing our research papers. That same concept can be applied to organizing research with Google Slides. In the video below I demonstrate how this is done.

Gerald Carey's insight:

I have used this successfully with some students in my classes to help with revision.

Given that students can get access to Google Drive through their mobile phones, pulling these revision slides out when they have a bit of spare time is a great way to revise for tests and exams.

Animals could help reveal why humans fall for illusions - OUPblog

Animals could help reveal why humans fall for illusions - OUPblog | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it
By Laura Kelley and Jennifer Kelley Visual illusions, such as the rabbit-duck (shown below) and café wall are fascinating because they remind us of the discrepancy between perception and reality. But our knowledge of such illusions has been largely limited to studying humans.
Gerald Carey's insight:

Although the classic rabbit/duck illusion is used here it is only because the authors are discussing the use of illusions by animals (e.g. the bowerbird).

Topics include colour constancy, forced perspective and perceived size.

This looks like one big scrolling infographic that introduces the main features of Google Drive.

Note that you need to use the up/down scroll buttons rather than the left / right buttons (these will take you to another article!).

Adding Texthelp Study Skills to your Google Drive - YouTube

Gerald Carey's insight:

This add on might be useful for when you are analysing text and then want to collect all your highlighted text in one, more compact document.

There are different coloured high-lighters which will allow you to categories the text e.g. for source analysis, you could highlight text which shows bias in red, credibility in green etc.

Simple, yet useful tool.
