Об электронном портфолио ученика Идея электронного портфолио, как одного из современных методов организации обучения, не нова. Об этом рассказывается в отдельном модуле курса DigiTiiger, об этом пишут наши коллеги в блоге edublogru , публикуя примеры портфолио школьников.

Google+ Communities: A Beginner's Guide On Google+, users have the ability to manipulate their circles to control the groups of people and brands they receive information and content from, but there's no guarantee those brands or users will circle you to receive your updates. This is where Google+ Communities come in, Google's version of a group or forum, built to bring people together around particular topics. Launched in December, the types of Communities available to the Google+ audience seem endless — ranging from science, animals, development and more. Communities are places where users can share specific questions, comments or content relating to a particular topic with other users who are just as interested in the conversation. For example, if you're a member of a cooking community, it's likely each post will contain something related to food. Many of the more than 135 million monthly active Google+ users may have already explored Communities. Where to Start Posting to Communities Notifications Create Your Own Community

Google Offers Effective Search Tips For Teachers The ability to search the internet effectively is an important — if not the most important — research skill for today’s students. Yet very few schools offer a way to learn how to search, even though students differ greatly in their ability to research online. Now, thanks to Google, teachers have access to resources they can use to instruct their students on how to search correctly , find relevant information quickly and learn to distinguish between credible and non-credible sources. Web search can be a remarkable tool for students, and a bit of instruction in how to search for academic sources will help your students become critical thinkers and independent learners.
