Google drive really helps to shorten your working day. It cuts down the number of email you have to send. I keeps everything in memory so accessible from any time any where...And what is most important for many of us, might save you from the frequent: "I lost my portable hard drive"

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad

Apps in Education: Word Clouds on the iPad | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

"I love word clouds. It is the best way to deconstruct a piece of text with students. It lets you start that conversation about language, text types, literacy and the power of the written word. It is also a great way to do a text analysis. Marco Torres talks about using them to compare two political speeches to analyse the types of words each of the candidates use but this idea would work just as easily with characters in a book, types of poems or even a series of artists you are studying."

Google just announced Google Connected Classrooms, which allows classes to take virtual field trips using Google+ Hangouts.  Field Trip locations include the Seattle Aquarium, Minnesota Zoo, American Museum of Natural History, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and more. More trips are coming also.  The field trips are live hosted events, but past events are archived and can be viewed later. Teachers can also work together on plans and activities.  This is a great resource for teachers and students to be able to learn and explore without ever leaving the classroom.

Educational Technology Guy: Free Evernote Training Videos on YouTube | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it


Evernote is one of my favorite and most used apps. I use it for project management, task lists, meeting notes, reference notes, web clippings, personal tasks and more.

I just found out about some great training videos on YouTube that show you how to do different tasks in Evenrote. Check them out here: http://www.youtube.com/user/EvernoteScott?feature=watch

If you don't use Evernote, check it out. It's free, easy to use, and cross platform. I used it for lesson planning, lesson notes, class notes, student notes and logs, and more as a teacher. As a CIO I use it for meeting notes, project management, contacts, web clippings, research and much more.
