How to Teach Yourself Anything in Less Than Three Months Self-education can be wonderful and frustrating at the same time. If you go about it correctly, you can teach yourself anything in just a few months. Poorly applied, however, self-education can be a stressful nightmare.

I contacted Google (is there such a thing) and found that the only way to get my file back was to publicly post on a a thread on the Google product forum.

Teachers Definitive Guide To Google Search Skills The 21st century education is all about cultivating such important skills as critical thinking and digital skills. Technology has radically transformed the way we teach and knowledge is no longer stored primarily in print. There is now much more knowledge online than you would find in all libraries of the world taken together. To tap into the potential of this vast repertoire of online resources, our students definitely need a bit of instruction on how to effectively use web search techniques to search for academic sources. They need to be taught how to fish instead of being given a fish everyday. In short, we have to teach them how to be independent learners.

Since our elementary students are 100% Google Docs for productivity, we knew it was imperative to reach all 19 of our elementary schools first. This began with professional development for our elementary principals and assistant principals back in the summer before teachers reported back to work.
