In the 20th century the world tended to be framed by the East-West relations and the North-South problem. Our interest has been mainly on land since it has been our living environment. Meanwhile from the late 20th century the resources and environment problems have spread our interests over the polar regions and oceans such as, (1) Sea ice around the North pole representing the global warming, (2) Territorial sea claims for marine resources, (3) An ozone hole above the South Pole, (4) Melting glaciers in Greenland, a cause that may submerge Tuvalu, (5) El Nino in the ocean, a cause of an unusual weather that eventually influence to the economy on land.

Texas [Ed]Tech: Teaching Integer Rules with Google Sheets - Multiplication & Division Math is the study of patterns, and there are few places that's clearer than multiplying and dividing positive and negative numbers. The beauty of a tool like Google Sheets is that students now have a place to explore integer relationships and discover these patterns on their own. In a previous post, I showed how Sheets can be used to help students explore the patterns produced by integer addition. By comparison, the rules for multiplication and divisions (same signs = positive, different signs = negative) are relatively straightforward. In this Sheet, students input positive and negative factors into the multiplication rows first, then answer the questions using the dropdowns. These are color-coded to make the patterns easy to recognize.

Use Google Maps to Tell a Story Within a Story Google's My Maps platform lets anyone who has a Google Account create their own multimedia maps. One of my favorite features within the My Maps platform is the option to create a slideshow of images and videos within a placemark. By using that feature you can tell a story within a story. In My Maps you can create maps that contain placemarks to identify landmarks, to indicate the locations of a series of events, and to show the start and end points of journey. Within all of those placemarks you can include text descriptions, images, and videos. Students can include pictures they've taken and videos they have made. Set expiration dates for access to Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides files We know that businesses today don’t operate in isolation; employees work not only with one another, but with third-party vendors, clients, customers, and other businesses as well—and often on a temporary basis. To keep your organization’s information safe in these situations, we’re introducing the ability to set an “expiration date” for specific user access to files in Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides. For instance, imagine your business hires an outside contractor for a project lasting three months. To complete the job, that contractor needs to view a spreadsheet containing the contact information of your employees.

Link to Other Google Classes One thing I love about Google Classroom is that it is not rostered. I can create a Google Classroom class for any purpose. After school club, collaboration groups for my students, differentiated spaces, special projects, challenge activities, remediation resources, etc… There are many good reasons to have multiple Google Classroom classes within a single class. For example if I teach high school algebra I can create an additional Google Classroom class for Practice resources.
