Googlink: Using Google Drawings like a Thinglink
Google Drawings is often overshadowed by the other Google Drive tools such as Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. However, it is an excellent tool for students and teacher to do many tasks including graphic organizers, teaching math, and desktop publishing (see here for examples of each). One more educational use for Google Drawings is to create an interactive multimedia poster. This is very much like creating a Thinglink. Let’s call it a Googlink. If you are not familiar with Thinglink, it is a powerful online tool that lets users annotate images with pop-up text, pictures, videos, weblinks, documents, and more.

Hallitus panostaa osaamiseen – "opettajamme ovat jatkossakin maailman parhaita" Opetus- ja kulttuuriministeri Sanni Grahn-Laasosen (kok.) mukaan Suomen peruskoulut ovat tietotekniseltä varustelelultaan kansainvälisesti vertailtuna huipputasoa, mutta erilaisten laitteiden hyödyntäminen on vähäistä. – Se johtuu siitä, että opettajilla on hyvin erilaisia valmiuksia ottaa käyttöön uusia oppimisen tapoja ja välineitä, Grahn-Laasonen totesi perjantaina hallituksen tiedotustilaisuudessa esitellessään osaamisen ja koulutuksen painopistealueella olevaa kuutta kärkihanketta. – Siksi uskomme, että pystymme tekemään tämän muutoksen ennen kaikkea panostamalla opettajien osaamiseen ja pidämme huolen siitä, että meidän opettajamme voivat tulevaisuudessakin olla laajalla pedagogisella vapaudellaan maailman parhaita opettajia.

Hallitus aikoo perustaa kokeilukeskuksen opetushallituksen yhteyteen.
