Who owns your files on Google Drive?

Who owns your files on Google Drive? | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Google Drive's terms of service do indeed allow you to own your own files, but grant the company a license to do as it wants with your uploaded content. Read this blog post by Zack Whittaker on Internet & Media.

 

Within hours of Google launching its new online storage service, the terms and service have come under heavy fire by the wider community for how it handles users' copyright and intellectual property rights.


After Dropbox and Microsoft's SkyDrive -- the two most popular online storage services on the web -- Google was late to the party by a number of years. While Google needed no advertising to drum up support, what may hold back uptake is that as per the company's terms and conditions, the rights to the files you upload to Google Drive will be passed on to the search giant.


A quick analysis of Google's terms of service shows how far the search company goes in 'owning' your files, and how it can do anything it wants with them...

How To Decide Which Social Network You Should Use

How To Decide Which Social Network You Should Use | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

You don’t have time to monitor Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Orkut, LinkedIn, wait, Orkut? Exactly. There are literally kabillions of social networks out there just screaming to get you in as a user. Sure, Twitter and Facebook are the big ones that you’ve already joined. But are they right for you? What about LinkedIn? Or the upstart (and newly redesigned) Google+?

 

The following infographic from business consultant Zintro does a decent job summarizing the numbers, pros and cons, and what makes each network different. While it is not exhaustive (where’s Pinterest?!), it’s helpful.

The History Of Learning Tools [Infographic]

The History Of Learning Tools [Infographic] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students. It’s all about the history of education technology and could be used to educate just about anyone on how far we’ve come in a short period of time. We did a more in-depth look at the history of education technology about a year ago but this infographic is a lot more… fun.

 

Anyway, the below infographic from CTU can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF here (so you can fire up that color printer). Enjoy the walk down memory lane!

The power of Twitter

How I became a convert to Twitter • The teaching and education community on Twitter is truly inspirational...

 

Twitter is a fantastic collaborative tool. As teachers, how often do we get to visit other schools? In my experience, very rarely. Twitter has enabled me to collaborate with teachers in schools across the country. Combine this with cloud services such as DropBox and Google Docs and you can create and share resources and ideas quickly and easily.

 

The site is also a great place for discussion. It is amazing how creative you can be in 140 characters. Teachers, academics, technologists and other experts come together on Twitter to chat and discuss a whole range of topics – you can follow and contribute to these discussions by using hash tags.
