Handy Google Drive Tip for Teachers- Moving Docs to Multiple Folders

Handy Google Drive Tip for Teachers- Moving Docs to Multiple Folders
July 25, 2014 Here is an excellent Google Drive tip I learned today from Shake Up Learning. As much as I love Google Drive and spend so much time discovering its hidden tricks and features I must say that this new tip has completely taken me by surprise and I am not sure how I missed it. This new tip allows you to move Google Drive files, documents, presentations and spreadsheets into multiple folders. For instance, you have tow folders for two separate classes and you want to share a document you have written with both classes. This is how to do it: Open the document you want to share and then click on the folder icon. Alternatively, you don't have to open the document to do this. Now if you want to add the document to a single folder you can simply select the name of the folder and click add to but if you want to add it to multiple folders, hold the control key (Windows) or the command key (Mac) as you click to select multiple folders.

Google Drive (put a file into different folders) 10 ways I use Google Forms in my tablet classroom Image courtesy of TBR Mohamed El-Ashiry takes a look at ways of using Google Forms in the classroom. I am one of Google Forms‘ biggest fans! I have many reasons to love the service, and I use it in many different ways. While there have been many other advantages, the biggest advantage of using Google Forms in my classroom is being able to give students immediate feedback. I often connect my tablet to the projector, and hide the column displaying the names of students submitting their responses (whether they are responding to a test, or self-assessment or peer-assessment, etc.). In my classroom, students have had tablets (iPads) for two years now. 1. Student self-assessment is a very powerful tool in any classroom. 2. Peer-assessment also plays a critical role in any classroom. 3. In my classes, whenever I assign the students a major assessment task, I show them them the rubric that will be used to assess their work. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Like this: Like Loading...

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Two Great Tools to Create Image Based Quizzes May , 2014 Quizzes can take different format and while the traditional way of delivering quizzes was textually based, now web 2.0 technologies allow us to create quizzes that embed multimedia elements such as images and videos and not only text.

Today, I am sharing with you two important tools to create quizzes around images. 1- ImageQuiz ImageQuiz is a handy web tool that allows you to create quizzes around images.

A sneak peek at the new Google Classroom Education There’s a whole new classroom management tool on the block and it’s designed to streamline the tools you’re already using.

Essentially, Google Classroom lets you create an online, well, classroom that enables you to post on a ‘stream’ (just like on Facebook) and share assignments (via Google Drive and simple uploading) with a group of students.

Directing Someone to a Specific Spot in your Google Doc As I am working on a 20 page paper for my doctoral homework, I am wondering about the proper citation in my bibliography. If I provide the link to the Google Doc to a peer and ask them to check it, it would be challenging for them to find that one spot I am talking about. What I want to do is link my peer to the exact spot where the formatting is in question. Place your cursor at the beginning of the line where you want to direct a person’s attention to. Under the insert menu, choose to insert a bookmark. Hover over top of the blue bookmark that was created. If you are using Google Chrome the menu option says to “Copy Link Address.” This link will jump someone to the exact spot in the document where the bookmark is. Like this: Like Loading...

Three Ways to Create Mapped Timeline Stories Earlier this week I received an email from a reader who was searching for a good way to have students create mapped timelines.
