February 6, 2015 I just learned through an email from Justin Chando about this interesting update to Chalkup. The folks in Chalkup have finally made the move to Google Drive and created a seamless integration of Chalkup with Google Drive. Chalkup is a great web tool that allows teachers to create classes and share different study materials on a message board that students can access in real-time.

10 Great Tools to Integrate with your Google Docs Since Google officially changed Google Docs name to Google Drive and a number of updates have been introduced to improve its overall performance. One very recent update is an increase of cloud storage capacity to 15GB usable across Gmail, Drive, and Google Plus. It is quite obvious that Google is trying to outsmart its immediate competitor Dropbox and I think Google is successful in its strategy so far. To make Google Drive stand out from the crowd, Google opened it to apps developers and allowed users to select from a wide variety of web apps to integrate into their Google Drive accounts. With the integration of these apps, users can now handle their files and documents ways not affordable by any other cloud storage tool out there. I have curated for you some interesting apps that are integrated into Google Drive and which you can install right from your Google Drive interface. Here is a list of some great apps to use with your Google Drive : 1- WeVideo 2- PicMonkey 3- Google Forms app

Scribaepub: le iBook author du web He oui, il y a des services qui donnent de très bonnes choses, y compris lorsque ces services sont gratuits. Scriba propose donc de produire des ibook au format epub 3.0, donc totalement multimédia. J’ai déjà présenté Audra dernièrement qui a eu un gros succès. Scriba lui est bien supérieur. Petit bémol, il est seulement en italien mais on s’en sort très bien (et puis ça ne vous fera pas de mal de vous mettre aux langues étrangères. Au premier abord, il est moins sexy. Je vous passe tous les éléments très habituels. Une fois la création de votre livre lancée, vous devrez en définir la page d’accueil en ajoutant simplement une image mais rien d’obligatoire. Par la suite, la plateforme fonctionne comme une plateforme classique de logiciel de présentation. L’atout majeur de Scriba est son interface totalement Wysywyg qui ressemble à toute interface de traitement de texte. On se retrouve en somme avec une interface que tout le monde connaît. Un service exceptionnel. Lien: Scribaepub

Hälsoprojekt med IKT - biologi årkurs 7-9 - undervisningsstöd Att använda IKT (informations- och kommunikationsteknik) i undervisningen kan vara ett redskap för dig som lärare för att ge eleverna möjligheter till ett fördjupat lärande och reellt inflytande över undervisningen. Som alltid gäller det att utgå ifrån läroplanen och planera undervisningen noggrant. Det ger en bra utgångspunkt för att sedan använda IKT tillsammans med eleverna.
