Home (GoogleApps ePortfolios) - 0 views

  •  
    This Google Site has been set up by Dr. Helen Barrett to focus on the use of Google Apps to create ePortfolios. On this site, there are instructions on how to use the different elements of Google Apps to maintain e-portfolios.\n\nThere is also a Google Group on developing electronic portfolios in K-12 using Google Apps:\n* Group name: Using Google Apps for ePortfolios in K-12 Education\n* Group home page: http://groups.Google.com/group/k12eportfolios\n* Group email address k12eportfolios@Googlegroups.com\nI am hoping that other K-12 educators can join the group, and share their experiences developing ePortfolios with these free online tools. I recommend that if schools decide to use GoogleApps, they establish their own Google Apps for Education site, with their own domain name, as a quasi "walled garden" where student work can only be viewed by someone with an account within that domain.

Official Google Video Blog: Turning Down Uploads at Google Video - 0 views

  •  
    In a few months, we will discontinue support for uploads to Google Video. Don't worry, we're not removing any content hosted on Google Video -- this just means you will no longer be able to upload new content to the service. We've always maintained that Google Video's strength is in the search technology that makes it possible for people to search videos from across the web, regardless of where they may be hosted. And this move will enable us to focus on developing these technologies further to the benefit of searchers worldwide.

Google Plus: Is This the Social Tool Schools Have Been Waiting For? - 21 views

  • it may well be the granular level of privacy afforded by Google+ that is the key to making this a successful tool for schools
  • many schools and teachers have still been reluctant to "friend" students
  • that "always public" element of Twitter that makes many nervous
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • it's also about sharing with the right people. Circles will allow what educational consultant Tom Barnett calls "targeted sharing," something that will be great for specific classes and topics
  • Skype has become an incredibly popular tool to bring in guests to a classroom via video chat -
  • teachers are already talking about the possibility of not just face-to-face video conversation but the potential for integration of whiteboards, screen-sharing, Google Docs, and other collaborative tools
  • Google + seems like the solution for someone like me who wants to use the web to have conversations about school topics with students and parents and yet not have students and parents have access to my personal posts.
