Educational Technology Bill of Rights for StudentsThe following are what I believe are the rights of all student to have with regards to using technology as an educational tool, written as a student to their teacher: 1) I have the right to use my own technology at school. I should not be forced to leave my new technology at home to use (in most cases) out-of-date school technology. If I can afford it, let me use it -- you don’t need to buy me one. If I cannot afford it, please help me get one -- I don’t mind working for it.Google Cloud Print: It's Actually Awesome, and Here's How to Set It UpSince I don't plan to buy a Wireless printer for now, the only GOOD use I can think of this is to print directly from my phone WITHOUT mail-myself/dropbox-ing the file, turn on the PC, login, search the file, open the file, print, close, etc. etc. etc.) so I did this: (Keep in mind that this procedure is useful to me ONLY BECAUSE I am already in my house, and thus, I just pick the printed pages and turn off the PC and Printer): Preliminary Steps: 0) Sign to Google Chrome Print.

Self-grading multiple-choice tests with Google Docs I don’t have much love for multiple-choice tests — either for administering them or for taking them — but as a teacher, the format was sometimes required by my administration, and was sometimes useful for simple prove-that-you-read-it quizzes. Google Docs didn’t help me love them, but it did help me never grade them. Here’s how: (1) Go to Google Docs. If you don’t have a google account, you’ll have to set one up, but if you already use GMail or GReader or any of the other apps, you just need to log in.
