7 Ways To Use Google Tools To Maximize Learning - Edudemic

7 Ways To Use Google Tools To Maximize Learning - Edudemic | Digital Resources | Scoop.it
There are a boatload of awesome Google tools that we use every day. And they’re free, too, which tends to be a big winner for teachers and students. Free is probably the number one reason for giving Google’s tools a try – you haven’t lost anything but a bit of time if you decide you …

Beth Dichter's insight:

Google provides so many tools it is hard to keep track of all of them. This post provides information on 7 tools that may find a place in your classroom. 
Would you like to provide audio feedback to your students, or have peers provide audio feedback? If you are using Google Drive this is possible.

Do you have a student that needs a clean and clear space to write, with no distractions? If Chrome is available as a browser consider installing the app Write Space, a "minimalist text editor."

If students are working in Google Drive and are researching a paper they may have found the Research Tool that allows you to quickly search the web for specific information, make suggestions and more.

Google Forms continues to add features, including the ability to create surveys. Have your students design a survey and graph their data, or use it the survey tool to do a quick formative assessment as an exit ticket.

Learn more about Moderator, Image Directory, and Google Templates (that's right, Google has templates designed for students and teachers) in the post. Chances are you will find at least one or two tools to use for yourself or with your students (or both)!

@PaulineZd  has good, practical insight that K-6 and secondary Enlish teachers need to increase their use of non-fiction texts.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, January 6, 2014 6:36 PM

Short and practical ideas. But, remember that when the Common Core cites informational text as important, that means much more than reading narrative nonfiction. I find the use of the term "nonfiction novels" more than problematic. Call a book by its genre: generating an oxymoron is officious.

Five resources are shared in this post, with explanations about how to use them in your classroom. All have free versions available.

* LessonPaths (http://www.lessonpaths.com/) allows you to put together groups of web resources and other digital resources in one location. (This was called MentorMob.)

* Blendspace (https://www.blendspace.com/schools) is similar to LessonPaths but with a different look to it. Check them both out to see which fits your needs.

* Geddit (http://letsgeddit.com/) provides a space where you can ask questions and students can respond using most any digital device that can access the Internet.

* TED-Ed (http://letsgeddit.com/) is a resource that provides lessons that include a video, questions, resources and a discussion forum and allow you to flip any lesson you find. Additional videos are added frequently.

* Powtoon (http://www.powtoon.com) allows you to create videos using templates. It is a little more complex to learn and you will be limited to five minute videos unless you subscribe. There is an educational version available.

Have fun exploring these tools and creating content to engage your students!

Lori Wilk's curator insight, March 23, 2014 11:14 PM

This list of webistes offers suggestions for sites with tools  to help teachers to create interactive learning environment from surveys, to lessons, to making short videos. Super helpful escpecially since there's both free and paid versions available. You can have teaching tools on a zero or low budget.#education#technology.

While much of this can be done in Google docs, there are several features which can extend the conversation.  Teachers do need to share documents via email.

Intéressant outil pour faire du commentaire social (débat électronique) sur un document, avec des possibilités de tri et de tracking ... Parfait pour l'hybridation de cours

Murielle Godement's curator insight, February 16, 2015 2:52 AM

Le pendant de VoiceThread à l'écrit. NowComment permet de commenter / débattre par écrit sur des documents du web en mode privé ou public. Le mode public ne propose pas de filtre de langue, difficile donc pour le moment de proposer des activités FLE de contributions à des débtas ouverts essentiellement en anglais.
