Share a Google Doc with a Non-Google User Sharing and simultaneous collaboration is a huge benefit to using Google drive—but what if you have to share a Google Doc file (such as a word-processing document) with a user who doesn’t actually have a Google account?

Google Forms: Submitting Drawings - Teacher Tech In Google Forms you may want to ask students a question that requires a visual answer. Google Forms limits student responses to text submissions.

How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context Part 2 of MindShift’s Guide to Games and Learning. Those who still think of content as the driving force of education may not be ready for game-based learning. What do we mean by “content”?

Photographic education for all Image copyright Jonathan Worth "I don't think a classroom is an appropriate place to teach any more." This is not the sort of thing you'd expect a National Teaching Fellow and award winning university lecturer to say, but Jonathan Worth has backed his words up with actions and his latest photography class has removed itself from educational institutions completely.
