"Google understands the importance of finding the right information at the right time. We create tools to let you find the information you need, of the kind you need, when you need it. In most cases, a simple search works really well. But for more specialized questions, a bit of instruction in how to search improves all searcher--from middle school students to trained professionals--and lets you discover and use more, higher quality sources than ever before.


"Check out our 9 lesson plans for teaching search, and bring Google to your classroom!


"We also have master lesson presentations for each of the classes offered by our team."

 

This is Google's main website for search education. -JL

Searching Google: 38 tips to get better results - Pocket-lint | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"Recently passing the 1 billion user mark, Google has come a long way since it was first founded back in 1998 and has become a byword for internet searches. But, beyond chucking a couple of words into the main search box, do you really know how to get the best out of it? We've done some research and put together a few tips on how to get Google to do even more of the work for you."

Best Practices for Laptops in the Classroom - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Best Practices for Laptops in the Classroom - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

I have seen so many images of hundreds of students in rows facing frontwards in the traditional lecture hall with laptops in front of them and where the device is not linked at all to the learning design. Not surprising that these students who sit passively listening to the instructor talk spend much of their time on their laptops distracted with "other stuff" not related to the course.

Let's get our students out of the factory style rows and into "circles of learning" where students connect and network collaboratively on a project using their device as a tool to support them through a well designed digital learning activity.

 

In this ProfHacker Post, Mark Sample offers some good suggestions for best practice with BYOD in the classroom.

An affordable alternative to Camtasia for PC. | Software | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Check this out if you're a PC user! He recommends it as higher quality than Camtasia Studio and the cost difference is huge ($299 vs $99). "VideoStudio Pro X5 is a full featured video editing software. If you combine a full featured video editor (of which Camtasia is not) and a screen capture ability, then you have a whole new ball game with regards to flexibility and creativity."

Top 10 Sites for Curating the Web

Top 10 Sites for Curating the Web | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"With the amount of information that is available on the internet, it's important for teachers to filter through websites to find relevant information in a timely manner. As a blogger, I believe we "curate" the web automatically to help keep things organized and to convey information in as detailed and easy a way as possible.

 

Now, with the addition of dedicated websites, people can curate the web and save information on their own while sharing this vital information with others."

 

Aggregation first, then curation follows....

Aggregation helps make sense of the overwhelming amount of information available and for me has proved to be an enormously rich learning experience.

There are many tools to help with aggregation ...including the curation tools listed in this post (and Pearltrees seemed to be missing from the list)

Great list for both teachers and students.

Take control of any screen that has a browser with your smartphone | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

This is awesome. Any screen that has a browser (internet enabled...phone, computer, tv, etc.) can be synced to your iPhone or Android phone and, poof! The phone becomes a remote control to select, play, and operate any video on the slave device.

 

Control Kahn Academy videos from across the room. As great as this is, just think of where it's going to go in a few months!

 

Oh, and it's free. -JL
