teaching students to search

Terry Elliott's comment, July 30, 2013 8:50 AM
One very important source left off--open search engine Duck Duck Go. Plus, there is no place to comment on this site other than to follow and comment elsewhere. That is a deal breaker for anyone who is into truly connected learning.

Jhon Jairo Hernandez's curator insight, September 18, 8:48 PM
Since I am a 21st century studnet , it is neccessary to updated in all the techonological adavances that make our lifes easier. This article is important to for me as a student and a pre-service teacher becuase I can use for my personal and professional developement, so I will integrate this tool for my Personal Learning Environment. 
This article explains some unique characteristics about using Drive that are new for me. 
1) The Drive document can have different memebers, but I can send a message to communicate something to only one  memeber.
2) If I am the owner of the document, I can limit that other members can do. For instance, View: People can view, but can’t change or share the file with others. Comment: People can make comments and suggestions, but can’t change or share the file with others. Edit: People can make changes, accept or reject suggestions, and share the file with others.’

As a manner of conclusion, I can say that this articule was useful for me due to the fact that all this information  is new for me. Currently, I know all this content, so I will apply it in the nearning proccess.
