The Universe of a Single Task

By Leo Babauta
In the neverending rush of our day, what does one little task matter?
It is everything.
We speed through each task as if it’s nothing, looking already to the next task, until we collapse at the end of the day, exhausted.

Giving Students Feedback With Kaizena (Voice Comments) Tutorial

Published on Sep 10, 2013

Use your voice to give students feedback about their papers in Google Docs. I've only played with this a little bit so far, but I'm really excited to be able to use Kaizena to give my students feedback this year. Being able to add links to resources and reuse those links for other students is so helpful. If you have questions I'm on twitter @JenRoberts1 and the guys who make kaizena are @kaizenaFB if you have feedback for them, or email founders@kaizena.com

Sarah-Jane Davies's curator insight, September 17, 2013 8:41 AM

Technology is advancing continously; therefore it makes sense for educational systems to keep up with technology. This should be done because its is predominately the youth who enjoy advancing with technology. Therefore if more education systems use iTunesU students will be able to learn their work efficiently since they will understand it more easily than a dull textbook. If institutions adopt this new tool it will make vast changes in both the teacher's and students's education. This tool is very easy to use and is more convenient than compiling numerous notes and books. The only downside is that iTunesU is an Apple product. Therefore only those with iPads,iPhones or any other Apple products will be able to use iTunesU. Apple products are not necessarily cheap; therefore not all institutions would be able to use this new handy tool.
