Transcript

  • 1. The TOP TEN Google Tips for Teachers
    Erica Coleman
    EDUC 5611 – W1
    Fall Semester 2010
  • 2. #10 Best Google Tip for Teachers
    Use the Google Image Search
    Students often enjoy a visual aid to accompany the lecture of the teacher. Google images provide visual aids in less than a second. I like to use images in my PowerPoint Presentations, but I sometimes need an impromptu picture while I am teaching. Google Images is perfect for that.
  • 3. #9 Tip
    Search within a specific website – In the Google search box type in site:yourwebsite followed by your search item.
    For example: Let say you would like to search for what about.com says about school uniforms
    In the Google search box type site:about.com uniforms
    I chose this because this is such a time saver. Forget having to go to the website and then search all through it for what you want. From now on, Google can do that for me!
  • 4. #8 Tip
    Google News – keep track of what is going on in the world with headlines from Google News!
    I chose this tip because as a teacher, I can get caught up in just what is going on within my four walls. In between classes, on lunch, and break, I can keep up with current news headlines with Google News..and it is super fast, too!
  • 5. #7 Tip
    Google SketchUp will take any
    picture and make it into a 3D image.
    Students can use SketchUp to rev up any lesson that requires illustrations.
  • 6. #6 Tip
    Google Groups and Google Docs
    Where students can meet and study with their group -- online!
    Our school pushes for students to use technology on a daily basis. Students can use Google Groups to discuss and plan for group projects.
  • 7. #5 Tip
    Reopen a closed tab with Google!
    Ctrl+Shift+T to reopen that accidentally closed tab.
    Rationale: Completely selfish! I do this all the time—this function is so valuable to me. I work at a fast pace and will close a tab
    accidentally. This is no longer a problem for me with Google.
  • 8. #4 Google Tip
    Save any page as a PDF with this bookmarklet from Google!
    I need high quality PDF files to share with colleagues. This tool from Google is perfect for what I need so often.
  • 9. #3 Tip
    Blogger – Create an easy to use, free, and customizable blog to share photos and thoughts with all your subscribers.
    Keep in touch with parents and students through your own personal blog! If approved by parents and administration share your class photos with the families of your students to keep them involved in what goes on in your classroom.
  • 10. #2 Tip
    Picasa is free photo editing software from Google.
    Teachers can use this free software to edit photos for publishing on blogs, websites, or to hang in the classroom.
  • 11. #1 : The BEST Google Tip for Teachers is…………… (yes, that is a drum-roll you hear)
    Google Scholar is a specialized Google search to get results from scholarly literature.
    High School students do not often have
    access to the online scholarly journals that
    university students do, so Google Scholar
    is a great research tool for students to use
    to find reliable sources.
