Cuando estamos en el aula de clase, debemos tener en cuenta las actividades propuestas para ese día, es decir, que no siempre sea lectura y que no siempre sea actividad... Hacer que las clases sean diferentes, que no sea a "lo tradicional"

How Student Video Presentations Can Build Community in an Online Course

How Student Video Presentations Can Build Community in an Online Course | Digital Classrooms | Scoop.it
There was no way we could simply replicate in the online course the presentations that happen in the face-to-face version of the course. But we could use the online setting to do certain things that are uniquely suited to the online environment. So instead of having students present their solutions to problems in class, students presented their solutions to online homework questions by filming themselves and then posting the videos to YouTube.

I agree that : 

"The presentations got students working at a higher level of Bloom’s Taxonomy by having them create something of value in the course, and I believe that doing these videos helped them connect to the content in new ways."

The idea can work out well also in the classroom ...

Google Classroom - A Differentiation Strategy

Google Classroom - A Differentiation Strategy | Digital Classrooms | Scoop.it
The “make a copy for each student” option in Google Classroom is magic. However, differentiation and group work can require different students and groups to turn in different products. Making a copy for each student in differentiated assignments can produce an assignment folder full of unused files. Even in a simple group assignment with one file submitted for each group, making a copy for each student produces many superfluous files.

Here is a strategy to manage this issue while providing real differentiation.

Google drive is a great tool that is gaining popularity in educational settings.

I stand corrected!
