Free Technology for Teachers: How to Use Google Slides to Organize Research

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Use Google Slides to Organize Research | Technology in Motion Troy News &Resources | Scoop.it
Like many of you, when I was in middle school and high school we were taught to create index cards to organize our research. After creating the cards we sorted them into an order to support writing our research papers. That same concept can be applied to organizing research with Google Slides. In the video below I demonstrate how this is done.

I have used this successfully with some students in my classes to help with revision.

Given that students can get access to Google Drive through their mobile phones, pulling these revision slides out when they have a bit of spare time is a great way to revise for tests and exams.

5 Accessible Design Tips for Blended Courses -- Campus Technology

5 Accessible Design Tips for Blended Courses -- Campus Technology | Technology in Motion Troy News &Resources | Scoop.it
“Revamping a course to be accessible to students with physical or learning disabilities can help make it more accessible to everybody else too.”Blended learning typically involves an element of student control over when, where and how learning takes place. But what happens if a student isn't very good with "self-direction, self-pacing and self-motivation"?As Ibrahim Dahlstrom-Hakki, a senior academic researcher and associate professor at Landmark College in Vermont, expressed it, those are "critical areas of weakness" for students with learning disabilities — and they can be problems for mainstream students as well.

Marita Thomson's curator insight, August 21, 2013 5:44 PM

Some outside the square ideas for what works with boys, but none of these ideas need be exclusive to them. I like the emphasis on relationship building for long term success. Settng up activities which don't start with books but can easily include them is an excellent soft sell option. Recognising that many kids want to do things rather than talk about them opens up interesting options.
