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"

"When asked where they found their best resources for identifying new educational tools to try, of course #edtechchat tweeps cited their PLN and #EdTechChat as prime resources for finding new educational tools, but Edsurge, Educlipper, Edshelf, Edutopia, Edudemic, and Graphite were also listed as go-to resources for learning about new educational technology."

Rhondda Powling's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:56 AM

This publishing tool is very easy to use. You need the document you upload to be in PDF format. If you have a scanner in they school that scans into PDF, you can load it with the student work, create a PDF and convert it into a virtual book. Free and premium versions available. This can then be embedded into a blog, etc.

jamie camp's curator insight, August 12, 2013 6:34 PM

This would be a great tool to use to embed a classroom anthology of stories, etc. onto teachers' web sites. Love it!
