Google Docs for Writing Instructors - Kevin Brookhouser's GAFE California Summit

Google Docs for Writing Instructors - Kevin Brookhouser's GAFE California Summit | Creativity, Teaching, and Learning | Scoop.it

Kevin Brookhouser is a Google Apps for EDU Certified Trainer. This site contains his notes and resources for a workshop he gave at the Google Apps for Educators California Summit in July 2012.

 

"Google Docs can transform the entire process of teaching writing and eliminate stacks of papers and unmanageable email attachments. The process changes from a teacher commenting on a student paper to a conversation between two writers about writing. Teachers will also learn to create templates and forms that streamline and demystify the writing process."

Geography Strikes Back

Geography Strikes Back | Creativity, Teaching, and Learning | Scoop.it
To understand today's global conflicts, forget economics and technology and take a hard look at a map, writes Robert D. Kaplan.

 

This is a timely article that shows the importance of geography in understanding current events throughout the world.  Also included in this link are videos and pictures connected to an interactive map that highlights a few global conflicts.  Students would benefit from reading this article in preparation for completing a news article assignment.  Geographic context always matters; it might not tell the whole story but it will certainly shape it.

Wyatt Fratnz's curator insight, March 19, 2015 10:05 PM

  This informative article gives us a different insight to politics, claiming that countries action in politics, war, etc. are based upon where they are located. It goes on to describe different examples containing spatial, economic and political conflict. Afterward, it describes what this has to do and how it effects people (and their governments).

 

  This gives us a great insight on how space is afflicted with the territorial dimensions of politics. It relates to why certain nations make the different decisions they do and how it is related to our everyday lives.
